“Mexico played an extraordinary game; we had a lot of pressure from the local fans who didn’t stop their support all through the match. I changed the strategy during the match and made some adjustments during the sets to co apt with the performance of the Mexican players. From this moment we will begin other thinking to face other teams in the second round”

“We faced difficult moments during the game; Mexico team defended well and struggle for each point. We had to work with all concentration to establish our strategy. It was a fighting game, but we could win at the end”
México Head coach Ricardo de Jesus
“I congratulate both teams for the great game they played today. It was a physical game from the start till the end and we played the whole match with the same consistency. Our problem was the reception and we must improve that issue before the next round”.
Mexico captain Xitlali Herrera
“We knew that we were going to have a difficult match because of the physical characteristics of our opponent.  We played to give our best performance and I consider we achieved that. We had some faults in the reception and I believe that made the difference at the end of the game. Now in the second round the team will play more relaxed and any victory for us at that stage will be a great step for Mexico”.
