The classical South American battle defined the first place of Pool A at VIII Men’s Pan American Volleyball Cup in front of a good attendance at the “Juan de la Barrera” Olympic Gym on day three.
For Alejandro Grossi, coach of Argentina, the attack of Brazil made a huge difference. “I think we blocked and served well,” he said. “We played well for many moments, but when there is a very important difference on the attack, there is nothing to do”.
Juan Ignacio Finoli, captain of Argentina said: “It was a tough match. We are trying to prepare for the U23 World Championship and faced a very solid team. We had some good moments, but sometimes there are some mistakes that cost you the result of the match”.
The Brazilian captain Mauricio Borges stated: “It was a good match. We set the conditions for a good game on our side. They served well but we went out to block and make the points.”
