We lost the game but we learned a lot in the game!

China greatly improved their blocking
China's captain Qiong Shen: "I think tonight the match was wonderful. Though we lost the game, the match was valuable. We have learned a lot from it. I think we have done a good job in passing and blocking."

Italy's captain Valerio Vermiglio: "Tonight we are delighted that we won the game 3-0. At the beginning of the first set, we played well. But when China played well in the second set, we were nervous. However, we are happy that we won the game and we will improve ourselves for the finals."

China's coach Yhou Jianan: "Though we lost the game by 0-3, I am happy about the players’ performance. We have succeeded to fulfill our skills and tactics. I think we have brought that in the full play. Congratulations to Italy, they are a strong team. Best wishes for them!"

Italy's coach Andrea Anastasi: "Tonight China played better than yesterday evening. For us it was important to win the game. But when you have to win the game, the game becomes more difficult to play. It is important for us to enter the FinalRound in Argentina. Maybe we can be there."
