Brazil Coach Oncken Percy:
"We served better Russia. We made it difficult for the Russians to take our serve. We lost the third set as it normally happens in every match. It happened here also. But setter Radke set very well for the spikers to attack well in the middle and at the ends. Our win in the first set was crucial and we won it"
Brazil Captain Murilo Radke:
"It is a good start in the championship. We did make mistakes, but we will definitely improve."
Russian head coach Vladimir Kondra:
"We were thinking about this match for sometime now. We feel bad about this match. We surrendered six or seven points. That was bad. We should have won the first set and that would have made the players free to play. Brazil was strong and showed good tactics."
Russian Captain Valentin Bezrukov
"I don't like to speak about the match. We are now thinking about our game against Poland. We will definitely fight back"
