Bulgaria celebrate sensational victory against Brazil
 

The Bulgarian team celebrate their victory

Bulgarian captain Plamen Konstantinov: "Our serving was good and was the main factor in our victory. This also helped our block and defence. To win the first match against Brazil is sensational and we are confident we will win our next match."

Brazil's captain, Ricardo Garcia: "I'd like to thank the Bulgarian team, who played a strong game - especially their serving and blocks were good and today we were not good enough to win."

Brazil's head coach, Bernardo Rezende: "Bulgaria overwhelmed us physically. I hope we can play better in the next matches. It will be tough to qualify in a group like this."

Bulgaria's head coach, Martin Stoev: "This is only the first match and neither team showed its full potential. We concentrated throughout the match and it helped us with our blocking. I am convinced Brazil will play better and that we will meet them one more time in the tournament."
