Portugal didn’t manage to claim spot for the World League Group 1 but they showed that they have a huge potential:



I believe that yesterday we played all we could and today the players were tired. That was shown in the second set when we had the upper hand and lost several points in attack, which is not normal for us. It is a bitter taste. However, we stay confident as we are already starting to think at the Men’s European Championship Qualification in September. We will work hard to qualify for the final stage of this competition,“ says coach Francisco Santos.

Yesterday was a true final for us. We gave everything that we had; we had spent all our adrenaline. In the second set, we had the opportunity to turn the score around but, again, we did not have enough energy to pull trough. Congratulations to Canada because they played very well and they are a very good team“ says captain of Portugal, Alexandre Ferreira.
