Quotable

"It's a very big tournament, but the game is going to be the same. We got to play the same game. So all we got to do is no pressure, just go out there, relax, have fun. And I think when you have fun and play as a brother, like we have been playing all the tournaments so far, I think that it will be a lot of success in this game for us."

-- Wladimir Balentien, on the matchup with the Dominican Republic
