We always find a way to win - Brazil coach Giovane

 
Cairo, Egypt, August 21, 2017 - Cuba took Brazil all the way, but the South Americans persevered to come back from 1-3 and win 4-3 here on Monday, securing their berth in the semifinals of the 2017 FIVB Men's U23 World Championship. Here's the reaction:

Brazil coach, Giovane Gavio: "We started down because we were a little bit tired, this being our fourth consecutive match. Cuba have a great attack and we were waiting to take advantage of their mistakes. We always find a way to win. I know how to motivate the team to change because I know that my players can improve greatly by motivation."

Brazil captain, Fernando Kreling: "We are very happy this time. It was a very difficult match. Cuba played every set and they did not leave a point unchallenged. Every point was life or death for them. They played very well and it was a very difficult match. We did our best but it was not an easy match for us."

Cuba coach, Nicolas Vives: "It was our best match in this Championship. It was a very hard match but we were very good. My players were very well but they felt a bit self-confident and they felt they would win and that is why they lost because they are young and lack the experience."

Cuba captain, Adrian Goide: "It was a very good but difficult match. Brazil are a big team and they played very well."
