Micha Hancock, captain of the United States: "We started well, we did a good job, but we finished better. Colombia played with a good defense, the truth is that they played better than we expected. We are adapting to play together, but chemistry and team play was the best today. "

Roberto Browning, coach of the United States: "I think we did not play as well as we can, but we played stable and this team (Colombia) is very good, does a lot of things well, is preparing well for today's game and what we did well is that we maintained an appropriate and constant level. It's the first game as a team for us, it's the first time they've played together and I think they played well, especially when the game progressed, we improved."

Antonio Rizola, coach of Colombia: "I think we played a good game, it's a strong group... our players were tense and very anxious, we still played well, we had sequences of four, five mistakes and that's the difference; the experience of the United States team was key. There was good defense, good serve and good attacks in our first game. I am sure that if we play them later it will be a better match. "
