Captain of the YUG team: We played very well in the first two sets, in the third one we had some trouble as Venezuelans are a very good team but we are a very good team too thanks to which in a difficult situation we supported each other and won the match. Tomorrow we will play a difficult match with Croatia. I hope that we will play better than during the European Championship in Zagreb where we lost.
Head Coach of the YUG team: I had no information about the Venezuelans before but today this team made a very good impression. We will play a very important match with Croatia tomorrow so we will do everything to be utterly focused and play as well as we can.
player of the VEN team, Lisbeth Villegas: In the first two sets we were not a team and we could not fight a very well organized Yugoslavian team. We started to play well only in the third set but it was not enough.
Head Coach of the VEN team: We will play the most important match tomorrow. Our tactics proved to be no good as the Yugoslavians played very well in the first two sets and we were just weak.
