Press release

Serbia's Petkovic praises Mexican play: "This wasn't an easy game"


The opposite stressed that the whole team will benefit from the match against Mexico

Jorge Miguel Azair Lopez, Mexico coach: "Since we learned about our pool in this World Championship, we knew this was all about learning and developing the team. We're trying to figure out which of these players can make it into the senior team. Today we played with a very fighting attitude and we worked on that aggresiveness, so I'm not worried about the last results."

Dusan Petkovic, Serbia player: "This wasn't an easy game as anyone might think. We respect every opponent and Mexico forced us to play at a very high level. This match will be important for us, not only because some reserve players were able to play but also for the others to rest. The whole team will benefit from this."
