Martín Valent- Dubai Polo Team
“We deserved a triumph like this because we were playing well but having bad luck to close the matches. We lost two times in overtime against Lechuza Caracas, the Silver Cup champions and the team was playing well. That´s why I think we deserved a victory like the one we achieved today against La Indiana”.
