Argentina coach Camilo Soto, happy with his team's performance

Cairo, Egypt, August 24, 2017 - There was satisfaction in the Argentina camp following the 4-1 win over Cuba in the semifinals of the 2017 FIVB Men's U23 World Championship here on Thursday - not just for the victory, but also for the team's performance.

Argentina coach, Camilo Soto: "We won - what more can we say. It is the second time for us to beat Cuba and I am very happy with what we did and so are my players. It was a very difficult match as it was won point by point with the lead shifting from one side to the other. This is what professional volleyball is. We played like a team and that is what made the difference."

Argentina captain, Gaston Fernandez: "I am very happy because we played very well and we won and that was our target. It was a difficult match but an interesting one."

Cuba coach, Nicolas Ernesto: "It was a good match and I congratulate Argentina for their good performance. We did not play well and we had some weak points that the Argentines took advantage of. We will meet Brazil which is a very strong team and I think they will do their best to snatch the bronze medal."

Cuba captain, Adrian Goide: "Argentina played very hard and they deserved to reach the final. We did not play well so we lost."
