Bethancourth, Guatemala’s captain stated: “We knew we had all that we needed to make it. We are happy. When whe saw them win on the second and third sets, we didn’t want to surrender and mantained our hopes.”

The victory was important in the development process of Guatemala. “We want to grow up in our region. Last Year Costa Rica defeated us in a Central American Championship, but todays win means we are taking good steps,” said coach Julio Domínguez.

“I am quiet and glad for the discipline and respect shown by my players, they developed a good game, and I am sure thei will be great in a near future”, indicated Xavier Perales about Costa Rica.
