Bulgaria through after being Italy
 

Bulgaria celebrate

Italy's captain Alessandro Fei: "It was a bad match for us. We didn't play well. Yesterday we stood our ground but today we didn't have the same attitude. We weren't the same team."

Italy's head coach Gianpaolo Montali: "Bulgaria will be one of the teams to beat in the future. They have demonstrated that they are a very good team."

Bulgaria's captain Plamen Konstantinov: "We started well and showed we wanted to win, even though we knew we were already through to the next stage. The main difference was that we kept calm and concentrated throughout the match and the Italians were nervous because they needed to win."

Bulgaria's head coach Martin Stoev: "It was very important for us to win this match. We knew about Italy's problems, which is why we allowed some players to rest, so that we can be in the best possible shape for tomorrow."
