Anastasi: We have to work on our mentality

Savani was one of the best players for the Italians

Andrea Anastasi (Italy's coach): "It was a hard game. I know we could get back into the game. I am afraid for my team. A win would raise our feelings. We must improve from a mental point of view. I would like to have the team more focused on the World League rather than on player transfers."

Alan Knipe (USA coach): "We played with great intensity. My team showed good volleyball. On receiving, we played a great game. Italy had great players. Gavotto and Savani played a great game."

Matej Cernic (Italy captain): "We lost a tight match. I believe Italy played at the same level as the U.S.. We missed something in our blocking though."

David Lee (USA captain): "It was our first important game. After the first defeat (against the Netherlands) we are improving. Receiving is our best skill."
