Canada believes that Argentina will bounce back in their next encounter at the FIVB Volleyball World League
Halifax, Canada, June 5, 2015 – Canada posted a 3-0 victory over Argentina but admitted that they had difficulty adjusting to their opponents’ game in Pool C of the FIVB Volleyball World League on Friday.
Canada coach Glenn Hoag: “We expected them to come out strong, they are a very fast team. We were somewhat prepared for that, but we made a lot of execution errors, so that made it difficult for us. We are going to have to be ready for them tomorrow."
Canada player Gavin Schmitt: “I think we did a good job weathering their storm when they came out early. We had to grind back and get back into the game. It took us a while to catch up to their speed and style of play, but I think we can do a lot better job. I think they will come back even better tomorrow, so we have to be very focused."
Argentina assistant coach Julian Alvarez: “I thought it was a good match. Lots of mistakes but there was good movement during the match, with lots of attacks. We had a lot of clarity in the end of the game, and even though we did not win, we have something to work on for tomorrow.”
Argentina captain Demian Gonzalez: “I think it went well in the first set. In the third set, we did not play as well as the first two. I think a 3-0 score seems unrealistic for how close the sets were. Canada are a good team and they defended better than we did. We are going to watch the video and see what we can improve on for tomorrow.”
