After the first match in the new edition of the FIVB World League, coaches of USA and Argentina were honest.

John Speraw, coach of USA: “It was a great game and Argentina plays a good volleyball. My team did not confirm the side out as I wanted and we had a lack of precision in passing. It was the first match of this season and we are getting use to play as a team yet.

Julio Velasco, coach of Argentina: “Team USA played better than us and deserved the victory. They were better in passing and counter-attack. We expect another tough match against Brazil tomorrow.

Bruno Lima , opposite of Argentina: “USA have a good group of players. They performed well in blocking and defence and that was crucial to their accomplishment today.”

Taylor Sander, wing spiker of USA: “It was a difficult match. We did not play as we wanted to, but is early in the season, so we just want to keep getting better in each match. We need to get used to play together all over the court. Overall was good to win the first match”.
