Cuba team captain Yumilka Luaces Ruiz: "Thailand played fast and defended well but we were able to adjust to their game. As for my game, I did my best to help the team win."

Thailand coach Sutichai Chanbunchee: "We played well, we've done our best. We lost because Cuba has taller players and we made errors in reception."
