“I am very proud of my players because even though they are so young they are learning to face difficult situations like playing against a player of the caliber of Lucia Fresco,” Brazil’s coach Luizomar Moura.
“We didn’t play well today”, Argentina’s Horacio Bastit admitted. “We failed in our reception and defense and they pressed us with their strong serves and complicated the game for us.”
Brazil’s captain Rosamaria Montibeller said: “It was a balanced match but we developed a good tactical game to control them.”
Argentina’s Antonella Curatola said: “Brazil played a very good game and their serves pressed us. Now we have to think in our next match against Colombia.”
