Hosts Russia miss out on second final chance
 

Brazil's Marcelinho celebrates

Russia's captain Konstantin Ushakov: "It's very difficult to give a comment because I'm full of emotion now. No comment."

Russia's head coach Zoran Gajic: "We need to win tomorrow now. I think the two matches against Brazil have shown us that we need to find the right way forward."

Brazil's captain Ricardo Garcia: "It was a great match for a semi-final. We started strong in the first two sets, then Russia came back and both sides were equal in the last two sets."

Brazil's head coach Bernardo Rezende: "I saw a very organised and much improved Russian team since we last played each other in the Athens Olympics and I think they will be a tough opponent in future. We played two good sets and two that were not bad at all. We need to find new solutions to remain among the best and now we have to think about France."
