JOAO JOSÉ, PORTUGUESE CAPTAIN - "Brazil came in with other players this Sunday. Our team did not know some of them such as Roberto Minuzzi and Murilo what made things more difficult for us. However we improved our game in third set and tried to balance the match".

GIOVANE GAVIO, BRAZILIAN CAPTAIN - "I did not play today but I really enjoyed to see the light in the eyes of the players that came in. We showed our real strength this Sunday: the power of our group. Brazil has a lot of players that can represent our country in the best way".

MR. JUAN DIAZ, HEAD COACH OF PORTUGAL - "Brazil made some changes today and kept on playing well. The team proved that is prepared for any competition or situation. They were superior in serve and attack. Although we started a little bit nervous, our team relaxed during the match. I leave Brazil satisfied knowing that we have a real team".

MR. BERNARDO REZENDE, BRAZILIAN HEAD COACH - "I changed the team today to avoid the players lost concentration after yesterday victory by 3-0. Our strategy worked out fine and we were able to win one more time. Now we are going to practice hard this week so we can continue our programme".
