I'm happy with way we played - Peru coach

Sokolova reflects on a "really good" game for Russia
Peru coach Cheol Yong Kim:
We played against one of the best teams in the world and, as a result, we lost the game, but we played pretty well as a team so I'm happy with the way we played."
Regarding tomorrow's game: "We will play against Korea tomorrow. They are very good at teamwork, they're tall and have good technique. They also have a quick attack, so I expect a difficult match, but we'd like to do our best."

Peru captain Leyla Chihuan:
"First I want to say congratulations to Russia. I think Russia is one of the teams that will go to the final round, we clearly felt that in today's game. Our team is improving, but we lost today. However, we are working well as a team. We lost, but there are some good points about today's game and I learned that if we do well as a team we can do better, so I want to improve on this point."

Russia coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin:

"We didn't have any difficulties in today's match, so we were able to win."
Regarding the next match against Poland on Sunday: "Poland is a really strong team and have been winning recently, so we have to focus and be ready for the game, but we won't change our strategy or game plan."

Russia player Liubov Shashkova (aka Sokolova):
"It was a really good game for us and we are satisfied with the result. We didn't have much time before the game, but this game was a good chance to get ready for our next game."
