"We played a different volleyball school" says Netherlands coach

Press conference Netherlands vs. Thailand
 Netherlands head coach Appi Krijnsen
“There were moments of difficulty during the match. The teams belong to two totally different volleyball strategies. Our strategy depends on the strong attack and block and Thailand depend on the  defense, same like other Asian teams. Our strategic plan worked well during the match after we made a good scouting on them during the first match and I’m happy for that. Now we have to concentrate on Mexico match and the second round that we qualify to with this victory. We want to continue working hard, I don’t believe my team is the favorite until we do it, our goal is to work match by match”.
Netherlands captain Sharon Zuidema
 We didn’ t begin well, but we could make the adjustments on time . we  finalize the game in the best performance, but we need to work more in different area, especially in the service and defense. Today our block was dominant again. Now our focus is to beat Mexico in the last match in this round”,
Thailand head coach Nipon Jamjang
“It was a difficult game my players suffer the fatigue of last night match against Mexico. We could not prepare better strategy for this match, because we played last night the last match and today the first match. Although we recognize that we faced great team and one of the favorites to win this Championship we are happy to play this standard.”
Thailand captain Siripom Ketsanoi
“We faced one of the strongest teams in this championship. For our team it is an honor to play this World Championship and we will continue working hard for each match”, Thailand Captain.
