Head coach of Poland, Mariusz Lobacz:

"We prepared ourselves excellently to this match. Analyzing on video the way the Chinese Taipei is playing helped us a lot. My girls knew exactly what tactical solutions our opponents are going to choose. I was happy that we were able to bounce back so strongly after being beaten in the third set. I believe with every match on we perform better. Now we look forward to the drawing of lots. We already beat two Asian teams so I wish myself to draw China".

Anna Manikowska, a player of Poland:

"I think we performed very well tonight. Except for the third set we stayed focused enough to control the game. Our reception improved a lot comparing to the previous matches and I am confident that it helped us a lot".

Head coach of Chinese Taipei, Mao Chuan Kuo:
