L-R Sole and Muraco of Argentina and Maldonado and Baos of Spain

Sebastián Sole, Captain of ARG: “Finishing in the top position is very important. Spain has played a very good match and we celebrate the victory.”

Fabian Muraco, Coach of ARG: “I kenw it was going to be a game like this one. Some teams tend to underestimate the opponents. For me it was not a surprise the game of Spain. It has been a great show of volleyball from both teams. We should play Serbia in our first match next week. We know them, it is a strong team and it is going to be interesting.”

Carlos Baos, Captain of ESP: “The match was a very close one with both teams very similar and with the same objectives. They have played better than us in the crucial moments. Now it is the moment to think about the day after tomorrow when we start a new tournament.”

Ricardo Maldonado, Coach of ESP: “Congratulations to Argentina. Me being Argentinean and being friends with their coach, it hurts but not too much. Argentina has played very well. After playing a team like Argentina we have a better idea about where we are. Physically we are up to par with most of the teams but the experience makes the difference. Now we have to play Iran in our first match, but we are also among the top eight, so all the matches will start with 50-50 possibilities.”
