Argentina coach Julio Velasco: “I agree that we showed some tension in the first moments of the game especially in reception, but I’m happy with the way the team came back even though we had our share of bad moments. For this weekend we used many new players and I think they were a bit nervous, but at this moment, we need to sow and later on we will harvest.”
