Japan captain Erika Araki:
We had never defeated Brazil before, so all of us feel very happy about today's victory. I hope that we can continue with this good form in following matches.
Japan coach Masayoshi Manabe:
This is a great match for Japan. We played very well, especially in defence.
Brazil captain Fabiana Claudino:
We had a good start to the match. The Japanese team had a really fast pace, really good control.
Brazil coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes:
Congratulations to the Japanese team on such a well-played match. The first set was not surprising for us. It's always like this before. But they never gave up. We didn't play our normal game today, and we had a lot of ups and downs. Japan took advantage of this situation, so they beat us.
