Sashiko Sanay, captain of Mexico: "We improved with respect to the game of Trinidad and Tobago, although today we fail a lot the service that is not favorable, because once we make a mistake it becomes a streak. The good thing that stands out is that there was more blocking, more chances of attack even though they have a very good structure and even then we were able to execute ".

Robert Browning, coach of the United States: "I like how we started, with a lot of energy and concentration, as if it were for the Championship ... and we want to always play like that, as if it were the final. We started well with the blocking, with the service we put a lot of pressure on Mexico, although we failed in the second set, but we closed better in the third. "

Claudio Torres, coach of Mexico: "We went from less to more, especially when the girls realized they could play without pressure, it was all gain, especially against this team that is an experience we always need. We did it well, but their service is strong and makes you suffer. "

"The receptions were complicated, the United States has a strong service, but to have a player over 10 points, I think it's very good."

The United States has rest on Tuesday, but Mexico will face Puerto Rico at 6:00 p.m. in the Cerrado Coliseum of Chiclayo.
