We will try to work with them, today they came out more relaxed, it is important to have a good mood and today they came out very lively."

Sady López, coach of El Salvador: "Today we made fewer mistakes, but the girls couldn't keep their concentration. It happened yesterday and today we repeated that we start well but fail to stay focused and then we cannot recover. When the opponents start to score points you pay the price, it's difficult, you can't keep the rhythm of the game."
