Press Conference

Netherlands beat Greece 3-0 (25-15, 25-15, 25-22) - duration 1:06
29-Sep, start time: 13:12, end time: 14:18 - Attendance: 4,000
Marios Gkiourdas - Captain of the Greek team:
"We've played our worst match. This is not our real team and although we haven't won , we know we have possibilities."

Stellios Prosalikas - Head Coach of the Greek Team
"The worst thing for my players is that they wanted to play this game very much, so the anxiety and the wishes to win were two elements against themselves. The Dutch block and services were good and we couldn't break them."

Reinder Nummerdor - Captain of Netherland Team
"We are pleased with this victory. We were more agressive than the Greeks, and our blockers played a great game, so we could stop their spikes."

Bert Goedkoop - Head Coach of the Netherland Team
"This was our key match. Now we are thinking about the second. We had a better physical and mental performance. I'm proud of my team, which didn`t fall in the third set. It shows that they are growing up."
