Croatia beat Kenya 3-0 (25-11, 25-10, 25-14) - duration 0:58
10-Aug, start time: 15:00, end time: 15:58 - Attendance: 720
Marija Pehar - the setter of Croatia: It was my first match in the world Championships and I am very happy that it was a success. We were focused and played effectively. That was the key to our victory.
Head coach of Croatian team: Volleyball in Africa is still developing and we can see their progress in every match. The Kenyans achieve good results in other sports and I think that they can reach the world level in volleyball, too. Tomorrow match may be very interesting as we will play against a very demanding opponent Serbia and Montenegro. That is what we are trying to focus on at the moment.
Captain of Kenyan team: It was very difficult for us to play with Croatia. We have not been able to show the volleyball skills the Croatians have.
Head coach of Kenyan team: Before the match I did not believe that we were able to win. I told my team to treat that match as a chance to learn. Every point we scored is the reason to be happy. I think that if we do our best in tomorrow's match we stand a chance to beat Venezuela and take part in the next round. For the girls it was an unforgettable experience. They have only played volleyball at school so far.
