Press Conference

Greece beat U.S.A. 3-2 (20-25, 25-15, 25-20, 15-25, 17-15) - duration 2:32
05-Oct, start time: 20:10, end time: 22:42 - Attendance: 2,350
Marios Gkiourdas - Captain GRE
"It was a great victory for us. The play was very strong. We started the game with some mistakes in reception, and took us to lose the rhythm. If we didn't made mistakes in the fourth set, we could have won 3-1."

Stelios Prosalikas - Head Coach GRE
"We are very happy we have won against USA, because they have been unbeaten till today. This was a match between Prosalikas and Beal, because I have learnt technical strategies in the past from him and I would like to thank him for all the volleyball lessons."

Lloy Ball - Captain USA
"Obviously we are very disappointed because of this defeat. However both teams played very well. Our main mistakes were our weaknesses in services and blocking."

Doug Beal - Head Coach USA
"We had a poor game, and it is very difficult to recover when we have had an inconsistent game. The fifth set was very competitive, and the others were up and down, with long periods struggling to get next to the net."
