Silva Goncalves, captain of Brazil: “Canada has a great team and we needed some time to reach our ideal performance. Now we are already thinking about the next match.”
Gino Brousseau, coach of Canada: “We are disappointed because we did not win today. We knew our opponents are strong, but we succeeded in coming back into the game and then we did well. However, we lost patience and the match too.”
