Varna, Bulgaria, June 9, 2017 – Brazil’s captain Bruno Rezende expressed his satisfaction that, despite the many mistakes his young team made, they managed to achieve the victory against Canada in the World League match played in Varna on Friday.
Bruno Rezende, captain of Brazil: “We did not play a brilliant match. We made some mistakes, but of course we are a young team with new players. We need to communicate a lot inside the court and I think today we did not do this well. Our match was a little bit difficult because of this. Of course, in the end the important thing is to win so I am satisfied with the victory. In the next two matches we should improve our game. It is always special to be here, in Varna. It was amazing to play against Bulgaria in 2010 because the crowd have a lot of passion and it is very important for us, the players, and I hope to feel this atmosphere again on Sunday when we play Bulgaria.”
John Gordon Perrin, captain of Canada: “I am proud of the way we played tonight. We fought hard against a strong team that is not easy to play against. So I want to give a lot of credit to my teammates and I cannot wait to come back here tomorrow.”
