Podrascanin not scared of USA

Andrija Geric spikes for Serbia
On the next quarterfinal match v USA (20 August):
"We are not worried. We've got two wins now and we've been playing much better. We proved that we can beat them in the World League; we beat them 3-0, although we lost to them later in the tournament."
"For us it's the most important game in the tournament. If we play like we know we can, we can beat anyone."

On today's match:
"There was pressure before the game for us as we needed the victory before the quarterfinals. We were 100 per cent favourites and when the game started the pressure subsided and we didn't let Egypt surprise us."
On Serbia's overall performance in the preliminaries:
"We had a difficult pool with Brazil and Russia. Before the Olympic Games we wanted to make the quarterfinals, but Poland was a difficult game for us and the pressure started to grow. It was good for us to beat Germany to build our team confidence, which we can now take to the USA."
