Finnish coach Mauro Berruto: "USA was better than us in some key moments of the match and they also started every set better than us. Our team is much younger than USA. We got a lesson today. It is very important that we know now that we can challenge them."
Finnish captain Jukka Lehtonen: "Our team played two different matches. When we played well we did all we can do at our best. Then we had black moments when nothing succeeded."
U.S. coach Alan Knipe: "I think that this was a well played match from both teams at this early stage of World League. Finland was very aggressive in serves and put a pressure to us. I am very happy with my team."
U.S. captain Ryan Millar: "This was a tough match. In the first set we were leading, but Finland came back and won. The third set was a turning point of this match when we won it 27-25."
