Egypt Coach shows satisfaction

Omar Hassan, Captain of Egypt: "We are happy, we have been focussed on the match. Last time against Puerto Rico we lost because we weren't focussed on the goal. Today we were completely another team. This is why we got to the ranking for the 13th and 14th place":
Attia Hossam, Coach of Egypt: "Finally I can say this is my team. I keep supporting them saying "you are good players, you are good players!". Now we are equal with Puerto Rico: they won last time but we have one today: 1-1".
Javier Perez, player of Puerto Rico: "I can't say if they have won or we have lost, I would say probably both. For sure they have played better today and we haven't played our best game. After the first set we started very slowly".
Ariel Diaz, Coach of Puerto Rico: "I agree with him: we started very slowly. Egypt kept on working in the match. We tried to make some arrangements to block against Moustafa Idris but it was very very hard. Their opposite was unstoppable today. We tried to keep our mind and concentration but weren't able to do it. Tomorrow we have to keep playing at a good level. This tournament has been important for us to make and store experience above all. We will increase our level thanks to this championship. This tournament has been useful to establish our programme with this team for the next year".
