Cho Wanki, Head Coach of Korea: “One of our players got injured on the first game, but she overcome and today we could show all of our good conditions. Now we got adjusted to the time difference and Sim Miog played really good, so I feel happy for the team. It's really hard to play in World Championships with all this great teams, but now we have understood our rivals' game and we could get the victory. Now we will prepare for the following games”. 

Tomas Fernandez Arte, Head Coach of Cuba: “Korea didn't let us play. We were nervous and didn't do it well on reception and when we did, we failed on setting or attacking.

We hope tomorrow we can play better against Argentina and bring a good show”.
