Khadambi grateful for learning curve as Kenya bow out

Kenya coach Hidehiro Irisawa:
"Volleyball is about one point at a time. I think the players understood that and learned that it is important to fight for every point."

Kenya captain Brackcides Khadambi:
"It was a good game. When we took a lead of five points, we got excited, and forgot that we still have to play and win the game. 
"I'd like to say thank you to the fans. I think when they cheered for us, it lifted our morale and we played a little better.
"When you play against a team that has tall blockers, there's no need to aim inside, you just aim over them and around them with touch. We also learned more about blocking and receiving. I learned many things."

Czech coach Jiri Siller:
"We concentrated on the game to spare our power for the next round.We played to win only without worrying about the point ratio."

Czech player Aneta Havlickova:
"For me it's not important if I have 34 or 25 points, it doesn't matter. What matters is that we play as a team. If we play together good as a team, I feel good. Today, it was a very hard match for concentration. We were very tired after yesterday's match. We won 3-0, it was important for us. But it was not an easy match.
"I think I can do better in defence, and maybe service too."

Czech captain Ivana Plchotova:
"Of course we played for the win. I am really not interested in what will happen in the last match (Brazil and Italy). I am happy to go to the last round with my teammates. This match today was difficult for all of us. We were so tired after yesterday's match, which was like a marathon. So it was a big satisfaction that we won 3-0."
