Stoychev wants more from his side

Vladimir Nikolov is happy with his team's play
Bulgaria coach Radostin Stoychev: "I am satisfied with the result and 3 points and not happy all the way with the performance. This is not level matching our expectations. We were well organized this time, made less errors and we knew Japan's capacity. However we need to work on our attack. We do not want to be euphoric with this victory - Russia is to come and they are much better team."

Bulgaria captain Vladimir Nikolov: "I am glad that we won this important match on our way to the Finals. Less mistakes and more organization brought us the victory."

Japan coach Tatsuya Ueta: "We had a lot of problems today mostly with our serve and reception. The breaking point anyway was psychological - the boys could not stand the pressure. We have a lot of hard matches to play and we need to improve."

Japan captain Daisuke Usami: "Today we should have played better than the first match. Unfortunately, it does not happen. We had an idea to improve our play but we played one of our worst games. We look forward to become winners."
