Press Conference Cuba vs. Kenya

Everlyne Makuto, Captain of Kenya

“We came out to play hard and it was a pleasure to compete against a team like Cuba. We are happy with our progress and the fans really enjoyed our performance.”

Yudith Pumariega, Player of Cuba

“We are very happy for the victory. Our coach gave playing time to many of the reserve girls and they did a good job. It is a victory that motivates us for our match of tomorrow against Thailand.”

Paul Bitok, Head Coach of Kenya

“I am very happy about the match. It is a learning process for us and we are improving from the previous day. Our players are getting used to the competition and they don’t panic anymore like in the past. We hope to continue improving in the upcoming games.”

Joel Olazabal, Head Coach of Cuba

“I wanted to give some playing time to my younger girls. Also I want to congratulate Kenya for the enthusiasm they show while playing. We also can learn from them. Sometimes our players don’t seem to enjoy the game and that’s very important. If they continue like that, I can assure you they will be a better team.”
