David Aldana, coach of Guatemala: "They (Honduras) have a very good player who made the difference (Durán), with that disadvantage in the third set we could not react. We have two very complicated games, against Belize and Costa Rica, they have very tall and strong players in the service, we will try to close the best we can."
