'I think it was a hard match. There were a lot more long, difficult rallies. I was sure we would have the fifth set.', said The United States captain.

Germany captain: 'Congratulations to the Americans, they played very well, and they brought us a lot of problems. Today we played much better as a team, since I had some problems with spike. Hearing my name screamed by the Polish spectators was really nice, it was great to play in this atmosphere. Now we are thinking about tomorrow's match against the Dominicans.

The United States head coach: 'Congratulations to Germany for a good game. I think we played good enough to get to the tie break. Unfortunately, we didn't get it. We played better than yesterday and we hope we will improve before tomorrow's game against Poland.'

Germany head coach: 'It was a very difficult match. The United States have made some great improvement since last year. They were amazing in block. Most of all I want to congratulate my team, because they didn't give up, they really wanted to win this match. Sometimes they impress me with their determination and I am very proud of them.'
