Isven Roman, Cuba player
The win was really important for us as opening games are always
tricky. It’s given us the confidence to go on and challenge for a second-round place. We’re in a really difficult group in which Brazil are the favourites. They’ll be doing everything they can to repeat their success at the Futsal World cup eight years ago.

Eduardo Morales, Cuba player
We’ve been preparing for this tournament for over a year now, and are ready for the next round. It’s always five against five on the pitch so we’re not frightened of anyone. We hope to keep putting in convincing performances.
