Jordan Pereira, player of Canada: “After the first two sets, we came back and fought strong, so I am really satisfied.”
Alejandro Grossi, coach of Argentina: “It was a very long match between two teams on a similar level. The difference was that we were better in the endings of two sets, and Canada – of three.”
