Bagnoli: It wasn't easy to keep the team motivated

Reid Priddy, captain of USA: “We had a good preparation but then we came really flat and Russia put us in problems with its blocking. We couldn’t find our rhythm as a team.”

Alexander Volkov, player of Russia: “The World Championship is over and we are sad because now we have started to play our best volleyball. We played two really good matches here and we are fifth. I want to thank all the fans in Modena for their support.”

Alan Knipe, coach of USA: “They played a very fine match. During the tournament we got the answers to many things we wanted to know. Stanley and Rooney had a lot of pressure carrying the offensive load and it finally caught them. Tonight the Russian serve was very good and we couldn’t attack well.”

Daniele Bagnoli, coach of Russia: “I am satisfied with the results and our game for the past three games. We really reached our peak in Modena. I want to thank all my staff for the great job. It was not easy to keep the team motivated and I hope to improve more in the future.”
