Cuba say Azerbaijan is improving, Azerbaijan comment Cuba is better

Cuba captain Yumilka Ruiz Luaces: It's a beautiful game for both of the two teams. Though Azerbaijan lost, they are a rising force in women's volleyball.

Cuba coach Felipe Calderon: Today's match was very important to us, so we studied very carefully before the match.  Azerbaijan are a good team, and they have very good players. I whish they will make greater success in future.

Azerbaijan captain Oksana Guliyeva: Cuba played better than us, especially their blocking. We played well in the third set. But it's a pity that we lost the match.

Azerbaijan coach Faig Garvey: We were prepared for this hard battle. We are happy to play strong teams like Cuba because such matches are condusive to our improvement. We might meet again at the world championships. I hope we can have better performance next time.
