“We are happy to go back to Puerto Montt for two reasons. All the people are very nice and I am sure that the condition is very good for us to develop our game there. Now, we start a new competition with direct elimination,” Jean-Claude Giuntini, France coach.

“The game was with the champion of Europe a strong and organised team. They deserved to win the three points and I say congratulations to them. We have learned a lot from our experience here, especially the methods and schools of playing that we’ve seen from different teams,” Mohamed Alattar, Syria coach.
