Thailand are getting better and better: Bastit

The coaches and captains following the match
 Argentina captain Emilce Sosa: We did not play well. We must learn more to improve our game. We made too many mistakes. Thailand played fast with good defence. We played much better in the first two weeks, but we lost our touch here.

Thailand captain Wilavan Apinyapong: I’m very glad that we won the match. We made many mistakes in the first set, but improved them to win the set finally. We maintained that form to win the following two sets. Despite the win, we still have more to learn.

Argentina coach Horacio Bastit: Congratulations on Thailand’s win. We did not play well. Our practice session was also not good enough. Thailand played well. They are getting better and better. We hope to play another friendly match against them to learn more tactics from them.

Thailand coach Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai: We have never played Argentina before, but they concentrated well on their defence. It was very difficult to score in the first set, while my players made too many mistakes. We received a boost from the cheering crowd and we then recovered fast. It must be a good idea if Argentina want to play a friendly match with us to help improve our standard. In our next match against Cuba, it must be very tough. We beat them before in the first week, but after that they came back stronger in the second week. We have to study their tapes and prepare a plan to play them in Saturday’s match.
