The difference was our serving: Quiroga

Marko Podrascanin, Serbian player: Yesterday’s match was too easy but today we suffered from Argentina's serving. They improved a lot so my congratulations to the whole team.

Rodrigo Quiroga, Argentine captain: I congratulate my team because we played a great match. I was sure today things would be different.  We paid a high price on our debut but today Serbia couldn't handle our serving.  I am a player that enjoys spiking but I haven't been able to find my own rhythm.

Igor Kolakovic, Serbian coach: My congratulations to Argentina.  The difference with yesterday’s match was the growth of the Argentine team.  I believe we lost concentration due to yesterday’s victory.  Facundo Conte is a player that surprises me, he is very talented and has a great future ahead of him.

Javier Weber, Argentine coach: I am very happy with the victory.  The idea was to improve and today we did it.  I did not expect 3-0 but 3-2, so it was a great match for our boys.  Our serving was the key to targeting their reception.  Another factor was to obtain points with our first ball spiking.  Now I will try to find what great teams do: to maintain a high level of output during the two hours a match lasts.  Crer, Sole and Conte are very young players with great talent.  They are the future of our team.

Mixed Zone:

Gustavo Scholtis: I think Serbia played like a strong team but could not maintain yesterday’s momentum.  We put pressure on them with our serving and that gave us this great result.  For the pool it is very important that we won.  We are very good, with a great attitude and we did what the coach asked us to do.

Sebastian Sole: It was very good to win at home.  The difference with yesterday’s match was great but we must keep working.
