Press release

"We aren't as bad as some may believe", smiles Guaynabo's coach


Guaynabo coach Javier Gaspar praised the level of his side against Belgorod

Enrique Escalante, Guaynabo Mets captain: "We played much harder and energized than yesterday. Maybe we weren't able to capitalize their mistakes in some moments. But it was a good match, because we faced a very tough team. I'm proud of the guys and this will make us stronger for tomorrow."

Taras Khtey, Belogorie Belgorod captain: "Today we started the competition and that's not easy. The tournament is quite long, we have to play several games in a row, so start with a victory is good for us. I would like to congratulate my teammates for the victory and hope to have a great success here."

Javier Gaspar, Guaynabo Mets coach: "Belgorod has an excellent team, but I think our guys did much better today than the first game. We might not be as good as some think back home in Puerto Rico, but we're also not as bad as some may believe here in Brazil."

Gennady Shipulin, Belogorie Belgorod coach: "This Club World Championship has a lot of history, but for us is the first time ever. We will try to show our best output here. Today we wanted to see many of our players in action, to see how good they are, and I'm not happy with all of them. They must learn from today's match and correct for what's next."
