Jan van Cleeff realized in Wroclaw an interview with Gonzalo Goded, member of the Spanish Open Team. We publish here an excerpt of the in interview, concerning the USA-Spain incident.
Jan van Cleeff: You refused to play at the start of the game. What was going on there?
Gongalo Goded: I can not help you very much because the only thing I heard by my captain was “maybe we do not play” […] I thought that we were about to leave andthat I had to book the flight back on the next day, but he said: “Wait here one moment, directors are talking”. I did not want to get to much involved because I have a conflict of interest: one of the American players is a friend of mine and […] I want to stay away as much as I can.
