USA coach Karch Kiraly:
We watched the match of Korea and Japan last night, we knew that Korea had fighting spirit. They play good defence. We had a good challenge today against a strong team.
We have big goals. We have never won an Olympic gold medal. Someday we will, hopefully sooner than later. The team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will battle strongly to stand on the podium and maybe at the top.
USA captain Carli Lloyd:
We played much better today. I’m very pleased with the way we responded. Korea have a great defence. We had to show patience during each rally.Quick links - Volleyball:
