Quote of the day: South African coach

“What else can you wish for than playing the world champions in your final preparation for the Olympics? … Of course it will be very difficult, and we might suffer a big defeat, but … it is better to go through that now than at the Olympics. And it is the only way to be ready for the difficult battles we will encounter in Rio.

“These players have never experienced such opposition. so it is amazing. I would also like to say thanks to the USA for agreeing to play us.”

— Vera Pauw, coach of the South African women’s team, on playing the United States
