Puerto Rico have a lot of good potential players, but my players played well to beat them today.

We had fan support today and we played very well. We still have a better level than this. We hope to play better against Tunisia tomorrow. We must win this next match in order to advance in this tournament.Quick links - Volleyball:

It was very difficult to win when the other team sets the ball high and we do not block. We have to make some little adjustments. We must focus on tomorrow’s game and see what we can do against USA. We also have to improve on our hitting.Puerto Rico captain Gabriel Garcia:
I didn’t have a good game. We didn’t have a good level of concentration. I think we can focus some more on what the tasks are. We know we have to be positive despite this loss.
