Nikolai KARPOL (RUS) - Head coach
On today's performance:
"We started off falling behind. We got our rhythm back soon. Rhythm is very important. By the end of the Games we will have reached our primary target."
On the team's opponents:
"Today, after this morning's match and the result between Cuba and Germany (CUB 2-3 GER), the matches become very interesting. Everyone is potentially dangerous."
Jorge GARBEY (DOM) - Head coach
On the team's performance:
"We had to play our best 100 per cent throughout the match. We gave a fight for every point. We came here in order to win and we will give our best for it."
