Cuban Roberto Garcia, coach of Venezuela, said: “The boys improved in the technical skills, but not in the concentration, as it was the case of the second set where we failed in the reception and they made five points with Dane Pischke on serve“.

It was a tough match, especially because of the serves of Venezuela in the second set, but for us I think it was our best game,Canada’s captain Burt Maxwell said.

The Venezuelan Piñerua only said, “The only thing for us is to prepare for the upcoming commitments, including tomorrow against Trinidad & Tobago.
