We came to Argentina to win the tournament; we couldn’t so our goal is to reach the highest ranking possible”

Miguel Angel Lopez Castro, Cuba: “The team was not stable in the first two sets, but we knew how to change that. I’m happy with the confidence my coach put on me; I’m glad with the performance I had”

Plamen Shekerdzhiev, Bulgaria: We made too many errors and we couldn’t capitalize the easy balls we had. Lopez’s performance was outstanding; there is nothing to say about it. Tomorrow we will look for a victory that let us finish this World Championship happily”
