“I congratulate Netherlands team and I think that they have the quality to be between the final four teams at the end the Championship. I believe that we played the game with the same mentality and I prepared the players physically and psychologically for the match as we always do. Now we will make the tactical changes for Taipei. In this tournament I change my mind and strategy every day that makes the difference”.
Brazil Captain Leticia Raymondi
“It was a strong game, I believe that we lost the concentration in the second set and Netherlands took the advantage during that time. We could reclaim and win the set. We must continue working hard for the next matxhes. We are ready to play hard in any match. This is a strong level, but our team ready to battle”.
Netherlands assistant coach Bram Leijssenaar 
“I took over the responsibility to conduct the team only few minutes before the match. I do not believe that the defeat is only due to the absence of the coach, also we faced a great opponent. For tomorrow we will start the plan for the second match against Bulgaria”.
Netherlands captain Sharon Zuidema
“Congratulations Brazil team. The game was different from the previous, in the second set we fought to rebound back, but they have a very hard team. In the third set, Brazil imposed all force in serve, offense and block. Now we should work for tomorrow’s match against Bulgaria. Our team will continue fighting”.
