"The team fought till the end, and I'm pleased with that."
Martin STOEV (BUL) - head coach

On absent captain Plamen KONSTANTINOV (BUL):
"The only thing I can tell you is the medical staff of the team did not allow him to take part in this match."

"At this moment I can't tell you any more."
Andrey ZHEKOV (BUL) - captain
On the match:
"I'm glad that we won the first match. We suffered a lot of pressure because we are new here. We are glad to participate in the Olympic Games and we did a lot of preparation before the Games. We played consistently and managed to do with all kinds of situation and won the match in the end. I hope we can perform better in the next match."
