Argentina coach, Julio Velasco - “The weekend was good because we won one match against Bulgaria. We have a lot of players in Argentina they were injured so for us it was important to win one match. Today we had poor reception and this did not allow us to play fast. France is a very strong team. We need to receive better to play on the same level.”

Argentina wing spiker, Cristian Poglajen - “It was a difficult game for us. France is a very good team. They put pressure with the serve. Our reception was not so good. In the second weekend we try to improve our game.”
