Ivona Svobodnikova, Captain of Czech Republic
"We played without reception and team spirit. We had problems in our game during two of the three sets. Germany served very well and was two steps above us today."
Sarah Petrausch, Captain of Germany
"All the players in our team did a good job today so it was a team effort. Our serves were very consistent as also was our blocking. I am happy about going to the next round but I would like to go as winner of our pool."
Stanislav Mitac, Head Coach of Czech Republic
"Congratulations to Germany, which in my opinion is one of the best teams in the world and they must be one of the top three here. About the match today, we did not play a good reception and you can’t play volleyball without a good reception."
Han Abbing, Head Coach of Germany
"I am very happy about going to the next round. We watched the game of the Czechs against China and somehow found a way to stop (Tereza) Vanzurova. We did a good job against her. Also in the close battle we played point by point and didn’t panic."
