Italy's serves and blocks defeated us: Korea coach

Korea, NO.3, Kwon, Young-Min makes comments.

 Korean coach Park Ki-Won 
“The reason why we lost today’s match was the serves and blocks of Italy. They did a great job. Our players tried to serve as strong as possible. During the first set, our service worked well, but from the middle of the second set, our players could not control their minds. Korea made a lot of mistakes by themselves.”


Korea captain Kwon Young-Min 
“It is always hard to play Italy. Their service was very strong and the strong service made a lot of reception problems. At the middle of the second set, our attacks were frequently blocked by the Italian players. I think because of those two reasons, we lost today’s match. I hope tomorrow’s match will be better than today”


Italy captain Cristian Savani

"Today's match was hard because of the time difference. Nevertheless, I am really happy with today's victory."


Italy coach Berruto Mauro

"I expected our players' condition to be bad because of the flight delay and time difference. Today's match was a matter of pride and the game was very important for us. However, I thought today's match might be difficult after we lost the first set. But we recovered our confidence in the second set. And it finally brought our victory."
