'We have to make our team more even, we can't play only Margareta Kozuch against Domican Republic or Kozuch vs. USA.'

Press conference with captains and head coaches

'Congratulations to Polish team, they played very well. Of course I would be more happy if we won and I hope we will win tomorrow and on Sunday. I have to admit I'm a little sad, but I hope we will improve in the next two days', said Germany captain.

Poland captain: 'I am very that despite our mistakes and problems we managed to get the positive result in this match. Germany played very good tactically. I see now, that we have to come to the next game a lot more focused and make less unforced errors.'

Germany head coach: 'Congratulations to the Polish team and these very nice spectators. It is always very nice to play in the atmosphere like this. Congratulations to the public for pressing the referees, because thanks to them we didn't have the fifth set. I think we've improved our spike and middle blockers. Nadja Schaus played the best game in her life as a middle blocker. I am a little disappointed because I think we deserved the fifth set. We have to make our team more even, we can't play only Margareta Kozuch against Domican Republic or Kozuch vs. USA.'

I like speaking as last, because that means we've won. We had debutantes in our team as well as hard come backs (Skorupa and Skowronska) and that was obvious in today's match, we had problems with some elements. Harmonizing the team will take a lot of time. We didn't get anything for free tonight, the Germans played very consistently, a lot better tactically. We are happy that we could win despite all that. This a sign of better times coming.', said Poland head coach.
