Poland's Lukasz Kadziewicz spikes
Bjorne ANDRAE (GER) - Captain
Our opponent is a very strong team and did well today. In the first and second set we tried very hard, but we failed and we've lost our confidence.
Piotr GRUSZKA (POL) - Captain
I'm very happy about the match today. We were very concentrated on this game because it was our first day at the Olympic Games. The second set was crucial and definitely important for us because we faced the last set in a much more selfish manner.
Stelian MOCULESCU (GER) – Head Coach
First of all I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Poland. In the first and second set we committed a lot of errors.
Raul LOZANO (ARG) – Polish Head Coach
Today we played a very big match. Our attack was really good but the key was digging in very balanced moments. Our setter (Pawel) Zagumny played well tactically in his distribution. This match was very important: our pool is really tough, this match means a lot, not only because it was the first one, but for the qualification. Now we have two days to rest and prepare the next match.
