Press Conference

Brazil beat Czech. Republic 3-0 (25-20, 25-16, 25-22) - duration 1:12
04-Oct, start time: 16:10, end time: 17:22 - Attendance: 2,300
Ivo Dubs (Captain CZE): "We really hoped we could play better, but Brazil played very well. We have to improve in every aspect, particularly in our service. We are now thinking of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow."

Nalbert Bitencourt (Captain BRA): "We've played the best game of this championship. We've changed the team's spirit and we'll keep improving our play in subsequent games. We are very confident."

Julio Velasco (Head Coash CZE): "We are not very happy with the way we lost this game. One thing is to be respectful for the opponent and another thing is to be too respectful, as my team was this afternoon. Most of the time, our play wasn't aggressive or determined."

Bernardo Rezende (Head Coash BRA): "This was our best game. Our service was aggressive. We made errors in the service but the defence was good. We're now thinking about France."
