The captains and coaches of Brazil and Puerto Rico during the press conference in São Paulo
Brazil captain Gilberto “Giba” Godoy,: “It was an important game for us. It is not easy to play at home. We got really focus in the match. In the end of the third set they did some good defenses and we lost our concentration what can not happen."

Puerto Rico captain Hector “Picky” Soto: “It is the first time in almost 15 years that we played that early in the morning and we felt that. Brazil has a great level and we did some good things during the game. However, we need to be more effective in the end of the sets."

Puerto Rico coach Carlos Cardona: “I want to congratulate Brazil for the victory. We fought during the match. Also we had some good moments but we still have a lot of working to do to do to get better.”

Brazil coach Bernardo Rezende: “Everybody got in the match with a great will of playing. We were with some tension because the entire team wanted this victory after the loss for United States last weekend. In the third set we showed a relaxation that can not happen. We have to be focus during the entire game."
