Coach of Peru, Francisco Hervás: Although the opponent did not
represent much level of difficulty, our job was to maintain the
rhythm of the game and that goal was reached. Today I had the
opportunity to play the whole team and they responded very well.
Coach of Guatemala, Aldana Pérez: The first match is always
difficult, but the girls have come to face that degree of

will fight to add its second triumph when it stars in the South
