Italy coach Massimo Barbolini: It is important to see our improvement in each match

Italy's attacking helped them see of Germany on Sunday
Italy coach Massimo Barbolini, “Thanks to the Hong Kong organizer, they are always very good in hosting. Today we played a good match, a match that helps us to arrive to the finals in Macau. But it is going to be hard, for the best eight teams in the world will be in the tournament. It is important to see our improvement in each match. Today’s match is the same.”

Italy captain Eleonora Lo Bianco, “We played a good game, especially in the first and second sets. Germany served very well. We have problem in reception, but we are delight to close the match in three sets and enter the finals."

Germany coach Giovanni Guidetti, “Congratulations to Italy, they are clever enough to use our weaknesses. I think we had a decent match, we did well in serving, defence and blocking. However, we still have too many problems and hence lost points to them.”

Germany captain Christiane Furst, “Compliments to Italy, we did not start as good as we wanted. We tried to come back yet we could not use the advantage to win the final set.”
