The United States outscored Cuba in spikes 38-27, in blocks 6-4 and in serves 10-5.
Sarah Parsons, captain of the United States: I think that in general our team did a good job, we prepared very well, they put pressure on us at times but we knew how to stay calm and fight back.
Grettel Moreno, captain of Cuba: My opinion about the match is that perhaps Cuba could have presented itself with a better form, reduce unforced errors and work a little more on the attack. I feel that today the attack, which is one of our strengths, is not handled very well.
