Japan Head Coach Shoichi Yanagimoto

Today match was wonderful, both teams played well. We fight until the end. This was the most important reason for us to win.

Japan captain Yoshie Takeshita

It was a difficult match, but we maintained our confidence for the entire match. Polish players are tall and strong and their attacks put a lot of pressure on us, but we succeeded staying focused.

Poland Head Coach Marco Bonitta

Congratulation to the Japanese team, they won a big fight. For us it was difficult after two matches that we played far from our standards. The big difference among the two teams this night was the break points. Japan managed to change something during the game. We must relax and think about the next two matches.

Poland captain Milena Rosner

Japan played a very good game. It was a five sets match and they played with great defence, especially in the last set. That was the key for them to win.
