Alekno: "Happy that we turned the match"

German captain Robert Kromm, German head coach Raúl Lozano, Russian head coach Vladimir Alekno and Russian captain Taras Khtei at the press conference.
Russia captain Taras Khtei: "It was a tough match for us. It was our first game abroad versus a strong German team. They put a lot of pressure with the service in the second and third set and I am happy to have won."

Germany captain Robert Kromm: "We caught a very bad start into the game. After losing the first set we improved our service, block and defence a lot. The spectators pushed us, we were in a flow. Unfortunately we started very badly in the fifth set. It was a good game, tomorrow we want to win."

Russia coach Vladimir Alekno: "I am very happy to have won the match. After we easily went through our matches at home it was our first game abroad. I am happy that we turned the match, I am proud with my players."

Germany coach Raúl Lozano: "Russia played very well, my team had to many ups and downs. In sets two, three and four we showed a spectacle and the audience was enthusiastic. The second and the third set were the two best in this season."
