Happiness was the main feeling in czech team after the victory over Spain. In the press conference after the match, the national head coach of Czech Republic, Pavel Rerabek said that today "we have played our best volleyball; our goal was to qualify, and we made it, so we are very happy"

"It has been a very difficult game", said czech captain Ivo Dubs, "but we have played at a very high level either physically and technically, so we are very glad for the result".

The feelings were not quite the same in spanish squad. "We are very disapointed", said spanish head coach Francisco Hervas, "we have not played as we could have, as we have made many errors, specially from the serving line. Definitively, we have to improve a lot of mistakes, not only the serve but the blocking as well".

Spanish captain Francisco Hervas wanted to thank the public for their support. "I am very sorry, I would have liked to offer the public a victory, they diserved it", said Pascual, "we still have another chance in one month in Berlin, but it will be in Berlin and that makes a whole difference".
