Press Conference Bulgaria vs Cuba

Wilma Salas, Captain of Cuba

“I think it was a close game between two good teams. Bulgaria has many good players and we can achieve our goals advancing step by step. We lost today but we plan to move forward.”

Tsvetelina Nikolova, Captain of Bulgaria

“Today we played with our heart and when we do that, Bulgaria usually wins. Besides playing with a lot of desire, we also did things correctly, like serving, blocking and receiving. It was a good match for us.”

Joel Olazabal, Head Coach of Cuba

“It was a tough game for us and Bulgaria has more experience. For a moment I thought we had them a little tired and the chance of a victory crossed our minds. At the end we made some little mistakes that cost us the match. Our goal is now to battle for the ninth position and we wish the best of luck to Bulgaria in the next round.”

Stonyan Gunchev, Head Coach of Bulgaria

“Our two teams have the same type of volleyball with extra strong attackers. We had more luck than them in the key situations and that’s why we won. Of course I am very glad for my girls and I hope for the best in next round.”
