Serbia Head coach Igor Kolakovic: “Tonight we play all together to win this match with aggressive block and good defence, it’s guaranteed to make a good result here in Lyon. We respect the French team and our next goal now is to win in Grenoble.“
French head coach Philippe Blain: “Serbia has a better balance in its game. Sometimes we are able to play at a high level but only in periods. Physically, Serbia were stronger and we suffered tonight. Tonight we missed Antonin Rouzier and with some mistakes, it was hard to be competitive.”
French Captain, Oliver Kieffer: “In fact we lost against a Serbian team who didn’t make a mistake. On the contrary, we made too many mistakes on important points. We need to win on Saturday, we need to be more confident. Its’ hard, we are not so far but the score is heavy.“
Serbia Captain, Bojan Janic: “It was an important victory tonight for our team. We are very happy to win against France. We controlled the game with a young team and we played a good match. We are more confident now and we want to keep it for the next games."
