Puerto Rico coach Juan Albarran: My players executed the game plan well, as what we have prepared for after our team meeting. It was very important that we were able to limit our errors. This way, it increased our chances to win the match.

Puerto Rico captain Gabriel Garcia: We remain positive about our play every day so we can represent our country well. We did the same routine of preparing well to come here today and do our job.

USA coach Samuel Shweisky
: I give a lot of credit to Puerto Rico. They played great. Gabriel Garcia, their opposite, is a fantastic player. His stamina throughout this tournament has been tremendous. To be in the seventh day of the tournament, and have him play like that is very impressive. I think as they are in our region or zone, there is a competitiveness for sure. I think they rose to the occasion today and we did not. It’s a disappointment for us, but they just played well today.

USA captain Joel Schneidmiller: I think our passing was our main difficulty in the match. We couldn’t get it going and when we could do so, we couldn’t do our runs with their service. That cost us the game.
