Brazilian Head Coach – José Roberto Guimarães – "Italy deserved the victory. They were better during the entire game. Italy is a team that makes few mistakes and they give few free points for us. We didn’t dig well and our block wasn´t effective. Italy made an intelligent game. This game shows how much we need to improve until the World Championship.  Today, Italy is the better team in the world."

Italian Head Coach - BARBOLINI Massimo – "I am really happy with my team. We played a great match against a great team. We found a way to react in the fourth set and it was really important."

Brazilian captain – Fabiana Claudino – "Italy played really well. Today our serve and our block didn´t work. We did a bunch of mistakes. Italy’s wing spikers played a good match."

Italian captain – Francesca Piccinini – "Our team played a great match. Brazil is a great team and I am really happy with the way that we played. We were focus since the beginning of the match."
