Natalia Mulaga Dibas, head coach of Peru: “I’m very glad that we won today. As far as I’m concerned, Mexico is a strong team. We learned a lot from playing them. We will try to improve our game to take on Italy for our second match. Fortunately, we were the first team to arrive here and we could adjust what we wanted to. Two players in my team still have injury problem, but since they are young, I believe they can recover soon.”
