Germany coach Giovanni Guidetti:
"Today was very important for us. My team started very focused and really concentrated. My team has really played like a team at this world championship. I am proud of them."
Germany captain Christiane Furst:
"It was a great fight against a team that never gives up. They came back and we had to respond. I am proud of my team."
Netherlands coach Avital Selinger:
"I think our problem today was serving and receiving in the first two sets. We started to play better in the third set and then it became a high-level match. However, it was too little, too late."
Netherlands captain Manon Flier:
"We are disappointed with the result. I don't think we showed what we were capable of today. The first two sets we were off. They did a good job."
