Second defeat in a row for France in Cannes


Cannes, France, June 16, 2019 - USA claimed a 3-1 victory over France in the last game of the weekend in France.

USA head coach, John Speraw: "I am very pleased with the victory obviously, the French always play so hard, they were so good at defence again tonight. It was very close, but we were fortunate to come out on top.

"We’ll keep adding players as we go through the summer, Thomas Jaeschke should be available next week and Matt Anderson and Aaron Russell will join at Chicago."

France Head Coach, Laurent Tillie: "It was a great game with a high level in terms of technique and physical engagement. We were close to win the fourth set and who knows what could have happened in the tie-break? It’s a bit frustrating because we lost on details but I am pleased with the game we played. And it felt good to play at home specially here in Cannes."
