Berruto: Brazil clearly deserved to win

Mauro Berruto was not happy with his team

Finnish Head coach Mauro Berruto: "Brazil clearly deserved to win this match. I am really bothered about the way we again started the match so badly like we did against Venezuela last week. We had a good balanced serve, block and reception, but our attack was bad. Without a good attack from Mikko Oivanen and Olli Kunnari we don't have a chance."


Finnish Captain Mikko Esko: "Brazil played an excellent match. I am not happy with the way we attacked. Side out play has been our strong point, but today it was very bad. Brazil of course blocked well too and had a great defense. For tomorrow we must change our attitude if we want to win."


Brazilian Head coach Bernardo Rezende: "We were very concentrated on this match. Finland was good in serving and blocking, but we did well in reading their options in attack. We must play better tomorrow because we know what Finland has shown before."


Brazilian Captain Giba: "We played very well in blocking and defense and also on the counter-attack. These three fundamentals were the key to the victory. We were also very concentrated on winning the match. Tomorrow is another match and we know that Finland is a good team that can play better."
