A real fight between two good teams

Issei Maeda, Captain of Japan: “We played very well but they played much better. This is simply the reason why they won. Compliments to Poland."
Masafumi Oura, Coach of Japan: “I am smiling now because I am satisfied with the result. I agree with Issei Maeda, they played very very well. What we could have improved is the last set: for sure we could have maintained a much better spirit in it."
Tomasz Kowalski, Captain of Poland: “It was a difficult match and we also made a lot of mistakes, the match was good but I personally think we must play better tomorrow. I liked our playing in the first and the fourth sets above all."
Grzegorz Rys, Coach of Poland: “Japan has got a wonderful team and I think that this has been a very good match for both teams. It was real fight between us. Theirs is a highly technical volleyball and it is a hard nut to crack when you have to play against teams like Japanese. I am glad because we played very, very well. We have to wait to see who we are playing with tomorrow. It may be the USA. We now have to start preparing for tomorrow but before this let me wish Japan good luck for the next match!"
