WC M: Speraw – “Anderson is stepping into a leadership role”

by WoV

The head coach of U.S. team John Speraw was very pleased after the match against Argentina:



USA coach John Speraw:

“I’m rarely at a loss for words. To do something that hasn’t been done in 30 years. There is not a harder tournament to win. The team kept focus. The challenge of the tournament made us better. This is a team that has tremendous promise. It’s incredible what we could accomplish without players like Russell and Sander having even played a minute of pro volleyball. David Lee has put together a good career. Matt Anderson is stepping into a leadership role. I want to thank USA Volleyball, my staff. I can’t say enough. They were tremendous all the way through. It’s a stressful challenge for any coach to qualify for the Olympics. I thought our serve was good throughout the tournament and our blocking got better as we went along.”

Argentina coach Julio Velasco:

We didn’t come here to qualify for the Olympics directly. We did good and got the best result ever for Argentina in the World Cup. We lost our opposite just two days before the tournament began, which made it difficult for us. We learned a lot here. We played at the same level with the best teams even when we lost. Now we need to rest and then train for the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in October.”
