USA head coach Hugh McCutcheon: the team had a strong evolution

Press Conference - USA
Germany coach Giovanni Guidetti: “Congratulations to the USA team. They performed very well. We did not play that badly today, and have actually played better than we did in Japan. Our Volleyball skills are yet to be improved, and we have to work harder to strengthen our physical condition. In order to prepare for the next match against China, we will watch videos, and one or two sets of live matches at the Coliseum. We have played against China in Russia before, we played quite well and we do hope to play even better.”

Germany captain Margareta Kozuch: “Congratulations to the USA team. They played very well in the match. We hope that we can improve match by match and hope to have good form tomorrow to give the spectators a good match.”

USA coach Hugh McCutcheon: “Our team played very well today. We were strong in tactics and technical skills. We are making improvement from weekend to weekend. We are very happy with the victory today and it is time to get ready for tomorrow’s match. The team had a strong evolution after the match against Thailand and Italy last week. Thailand is a very challenging team. They are very fast and play with a different system and combination. However, if we play strong tomorrow, we are confident that we will have a good chance to win. Beating Germany in this match is very important for us as Germany still has the chance to get into the finals.”

USA captain Jennifer Tamas: “It is a nice compliment from the Germany coach Giovanni. Our goal is to get better individually and as a team. We will try our best to have a strong week in Hong Kong.”
