Press Conference
 
Brazil take their first victory in the Final Rounds
 

Brazil celebrate their victory

Italy's captain Samuele Papi: "We played well until the second and third set, when Brazil speeded up the game and we started to have problems."

Italy's head coach Gianpaolo Montali: "We had big problems when we lost our libero and we were already playing without our two main outside hitters. But I am nevertheless satisfied with my team's performance. We were very strong on blocking but it was difficult to counter Brazil's serving breaks."

Brazil's captain Ricardo Garcia: "We managed to change our mental game from yesterday. We were very tense before the match, because we knew Italy would be a strong opponent. Our serving improved a lot today."

Brazil's head coach Bernardo Rezende: "I'm glad we won. We had a strong opponent, even without their outside hitters and with Papi as libero. I have to complement them on the way they played on court."
