Ancona, Italy, June 2, 2011 - Italy v Cuba press conference

Italy coach Mauro Berruto
: "A beautiful success for Italy. The team improved in attack, serve and defence. We have to continue in this way. I would like to thank the great audience in the competition hall in Ancona."

Italy captain Cristian Savani: "We couldn’t start better than this. Three straight set wins in three matches. We played well and maintained a high performance during all the match."

Cuba captain Wilfredo Leon: "We made important mistakes in crucial moments of the match. We started the match with high concentration but we didn’t maintain it. We hope to do better in the next match."

Cuba coach Orlando Samuels: "Our team is composed of a lot of young players and due to this fact we made too many mistakes. We need more practice. We lost three important players in the last week, but it was their decision."
