Danielle Lins: "We knew it would be a tough match and fortunately we made it".

American captain Angela McGinnis gives her impressions about the match

American captain Angela McGinnis: "We played very well in the first two sets of the match but we could not control Brazil in the last frame. Anyway, we played better than in the first two matches. For sure this match will be an excellent experience for our team as we will learn a lot with it".

American head coach Hugh McCutcheon: "Congratulations to Brazil for the match they played and for the Federation for the organization of the event. It is always good playing here. Our young team played in a reasonable level today. We have the goal of improving each week and we gave a step on this way in this Round".

Brazilian captain Danielle Lins: "Our digging worked well since the beginning of the match, but we played better when our block got better. We knew it would be a tough match and fortunately we made it. Now we need to focus next week matches".

Brazilian head coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: "We found in the American team exactly what we expected: a brave squad. They fought for each point and is really important for our team playing against tough rivals like them as we plan to improve until the Final Round. Their defensive system brought many difficulties to us".
