We play with heart says Italy captain Vermiglioi

Italian Simone Parodi, who led his side with 20 points, goes for another spike against the Germans' triple block

Captain of Germany Bjorn Andrae: “Congratulations to Italy. We started well and had a good first set but then we lost the concentration and at the end the team of Italy played better than us.”

Captain of Italy Valerio Vermiglio: “We were a little bit nervous at the beginning because this was a very important match. We started with many errors but then we focused and played as a team. We might be inferior to other teams but we play with a lot of heart.”

Coach of Germany Raul Lozano: “First of all congratulations to Italy and second I want to congratulate the public from Catania for their warm welcoming to all the teams and for being so correct and respectful. About the match we played well until halfway in the second set. Italy played with concentration and intelligence. They made the adjustments and we couldn’t solve it. That was the difference.”

Coach of Italy Andrea Anastasi: “Thanks to Raul. The matches against Germany are always complicated because is a team that plays well most of the time. In the first set we made a lot of errors but after that we played a wonderful game. The fourth set has been fantastic and we recovered many balls. I am very happy with this win.”
