Ghazi GUIDARA (TUN) - captain

Marcos MILINKOVIC (ARG) - captain
"Congratulations to the team of Tunisia. I think that today they showed that they are a great team. As far as we are concerned, we played 100 per cent and we won."

Antonio GIACOBBE (TUN) - head coach
"Today we had a good game and I am very satisfied for two reasons. First, we reached a point higher than we had expected within the match. Secondly, Marcos Milinkovic, who I coached in the past, congratulated me. It was a close match. Argentina is a very strong team and it is quite difficult to play against them. They have a very good middle block."

In whether they thought that Argentina would win the match:
"If our blocks were better, we could have won the match. We had only two players in attack at the end of the match. The team of Argentina have a very strong block. The way that we play is different. Today's match was very good."

Alberto Fabian ARMOA (ARG) - head coach
"Today's match was almost equal. The final points were important towards the end. Today's match was not easy. The team of Tunisia are aware of the way our team plays Volleyball. "

In whether they thought that Tunisia could have won the match:
"From the beginning of the match I believed that we would win at the end. But towards the end, things changed. I have no doubt that Tunisia could have won."
