Head coach of Brazil, Luizomar Moura, stated after the match that:

"I am delighted with this victory because the opening games are always important. But this time we had no problems with prevailing over Belarus. In my opinion the whole team performed very well. As the game went on my players became more and more relaxed".

Captain of Brazil, Fernanda Rodrigues, added that "we performed very well in all elements but especially in blocking. We are all very happy for such a successful beginning".

Head coach of Belarus, Anatoli Stsiapashka:

"The most important explanation of our defeat lies in psychology. My players' attitude was completely wrong. We lost the game before the first whistle. Also the injury of our libero did not help us to concentrate".

Captain of Belarus, Volha Averyna, stated: "We all performed very poorly and it was especially our attack which did not work.".
