Veselin Vucovic, head coach of Serbia and Montenegro said: "We made many mistakes but we always focused on achieving the win. I would like to congratulate the young Cuban players for their performance".

Eliseo Ramos, head coach of the Cuban team, stated: "It was an excellent game. We could have won, especially in front of a great crowd, but our serve failed and we could not attack well on zone three. Thus, the win escaped us".

Pavel Pimienta, captain of the Cuban team, said: "We had a great chance to play Serbia and Montenegro and it helped us increase our still weak competitive level".

Nikola Gbric, captain of the Yugoslav team, stated: "We need to give more than 100% to overcome a crisis and it's evident that we still have problems. But overall, we are very happy to have won".
