Goran Vujevic - Player YUG
"We played an excellent first and second set. We had played a good match and USA didn't play as we expected. We didn't have a difficult match as this one before."

Vesselin Vukovic - Head Coach YUG
"Yesterday we said that we had to play better and we did it. The first and second set were excellent. In the third set we made some consistent mistakes. That's why we lost it. I'm satisfied to be classified for quarterfinals as number one. All the players did their best."

Clayton Stanley - Player USA
"The game was very hard but we already knew that it was going to be difficult."

Doug Beal - Head Coach USA
"Yugoslavia is a really good team. The strategies not always work. It's a team hard to beat because it's been at the top of World Volleyball in the last five years. Good luck to Yugoslavia and Greece that classified for quarterfinals."
