Bakiewicz: "We expected Puerto Rico to play well"

The press conference after the match
Puerto Rico captain, Hector Soto: “We had a good start to the match. We did what we wanted, we minimized mistakes. However, Poland's service was very good, it was a big trouble for us. We did a good job with defense and block, but it wasn't enough. That's why they won.”

Poland captain, Michal Bakiewicz: "We are very happy with the victory, because it was a difficult game. We expected Puerto Rico to play well. We realize that tomorrow's game will be at a similar, high level."

Puerto Rico coach, Carlos Cardona said: “The match was very hard. Most of all, we made a lot of errors, which we have to eliminate. We played worse in block than the hosts”.

Poland coach, Andrea Anastasi said: “It was not a perfect night for us. I remember Puerto Rico from the World Championships in Italy – it is a very good team, so we knew it would be difficult. We started with a lot of mistakes, but after that it was better. I am proud of the guys that they stayed focused and managed to eliminate the mistakes.”
