Tokyo, Japan, November 30, 2011 - Looking forward to improve its performance and the future of the team, Argentina arrived to Tokyo and is hostes at Keio Plaza Hotel waiting for the fourth and last round of the 2011 World Cup, that gives berth to the best three teams for the 2012 Olympic Games. In this venue the rivals will be USA, Egypt and China, starting on Friday at 18.30 to go on on Satuday at 15.00, to finish on Sunday at 14.00.

After a change of plans on the trip due to a car crash in the high way, the team travelled by train from Hamamatsu and Tokyo, in a trip that lasted a little bit over an hour. By bus it would have lasted about six hours.

At noon the team arrived to their last hotel in Japan, after playing in four cities in 11 matches during 15 days. "The goal is to finish the competition with a good performance, recover our way of playing and wait that Brazil qualifies for the Olympic Games to put all our efforts in the Continental Olympic Qualification competition but it is clear that we played at the same level facing some of the best teams of the world, we only have to maintain that output longer during the matches" said the coach Javier Weber.

This Thursday it will take place the official Press Conference including the 12 coaches of all the teams that participate of this competition and start thinking on the three last matches that will take place at Yoyogi National Stadium (Pool A) and at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium (Pool B - Argentina pool).
