Murek Daiwd (Poland, Captain): "We did not play a good match today. Portugal did it instead and I would like to congratulate them".

Ubirajara Pereyra (Portugal, Captain): "It was a difficult match today. I think we were much more consistent on the key moments today, and that made the difference. The Polish team made a good match anyway".

Waldemar Wspanialy (Poland, Coach) "Congratulations to the Portuguese team. We did not play a good match; we had many problems with the service. Portugal deployed a fast game which was difficult for us to control".

Juan Diaz (Portugal, Coach): "We played a good match today. We tried to complicate their reception to disturb their setting. We did it at times and I am very happy. We came to this World Championship with the objective of playing as well as possible and we are achieving that. We are among the best eight, that is a big merit and also very important for us".
