Camillo Placi (Head Coach of Bulgaria): "It was an equal match and the result could have been positive for the Argentinean team. It was a better game than the yesterday, and it was on a higher level. The Argentinean attack was better and we played as equals. I would like to thank the crowd and the organizers for the fantastic weekend."
