Berruto gives thanks to killing blocks and dig attacks

Finns attacked well against Poland.

Finnish Head coach Mauro Berruto:"We arrived totally focused to this match. Something happened in the third set. We made 13 free mistakes and it is impossible to win a set with so many mistakes. We won the match because of two skills, killing blocks and dig attacks. We need more confidence in side out attacks and we must play better in service. We were good in the endings of the sets. I am happy that we won all the three points."

 

Finnish Captain Mikko Esko:"I am really happy for the victory although we did not play very well today. In the third set we made many mistakes in service. In fourth set we again could fight well and I am glad that it was enough to win the match. It was not difficult to concentrate on this match after the win over Brazil. Personally I didn't think this match was difficult. Maybe the audience was waiting for an easy win over Poland, but Poland is a good team and they played well today."

 

Polish Head coach Daniel Castellani:"Finland played a good match today. We played quite normally from our possibilities. We have many young players in the team. Many times they played on a high level and many times made mistakes."

 

Polish Captain Pawel Woicki:"Finland started the match well playing the first two sets well. Third and fourth set were very good for us and we played very well. In the fourth set it was very difficult to take points."
