Stellios Prosalikas - Head Coach GRE
"We had a bad start but we could classify. The most important thing is that we don't have to move from Salta. I have two injured, but they will be recovered for Friday."

Ivo Dubs - Captain CZE
"We are happy because we won this match. We hope to go further. We thought it was going to be easier, but it wasn't."

Julio Velasco - Head CoachCZE
"I want the team to be calm for the next round. This team hasn't played officially before and the pressure was negative. I'm happy because of the good show and for the Czech fans. We have to improve service, reception, attacks and jump balls. Finally I would like to thank the people from Salta because everywhere we went,, they always asked us if we were OK."
