They trusted each other, I had warned them we couldn't trust each other and that happened. It was about putting a little more courage, we have already trained all kinds of situations and the pressure that El Salvador put on is good to improve. "

Sady López, coach of El Salvador: "We have a very inexperienced team, they need more experience, they started very nervous, anxious to do things well and that led them to make mistakes. In the third set, the recovery was very good, same in the fourth, I can't complain about the group and I think it was a good game, they fought, but we had many ups and downs."
