Press Conference

U.S.A. beat China 3-0 (25-23, 30-28, 25-19) - duration 1:15
04-Oct, start time: 20:10, end time: 21:25 - Attendance: 3,500
Liang Zheng - Captain CHN

"The US team played very well. We were weak and they fought well and that's why we lost the match. We made some mistakes in service and we could not recover from that."

Di Anhe - Head Coach CHN
"From the first set the lack of experience of my team was evident. We couldn't break their strength and they scored the key points."

Lloy Ball - Captain USA
"It is very difficult to play against China or Japan, because they play different and faster than European teams. We are happy about this victory tonight. "

Doug Beal - Head Coach USA
"It was a close match. I'm happy we've won the three sets. I was comfortable with how my team played tonight, but we have to play better tomorrow. My team scored the best points at the end of every set."
