Puerto Rican captain Roberto Muñiz after great win said:
“Thanks to the Mexican fans who supported us. We played a great match and now we will focus in our next one.”
“We started from the bottom to the top,” said David Aleman about his team. “We knew that if we could win one match we could reach the semifinals and fortunately did so. We had spent just seven months before this tournament and grew up collectively”.
“Congratulations to Puerto Rico, they really controlled the game in the middle. We had some chances to win, but they defended and play very well,” said USA coach Shawn Patchell.
“We are very dissapointed and have to learn from our mistakes,” captain of USA Ryan Ammerman stated.
