Germany head coach: "We have one last stand in the championship. The USA or Mexico, we can play anyteam."

Dominican Republic head coach Enrique Larrazaleta: “We played well in the match. However, the loss in the second set gave us trouble to continue the fight. If we won the second set, I think we could win the match. We just lost our concentration and that’s what counted for the loss. Germany played well defensively and offensively. Nevertheless, I don’t think my players had pressure taking on them.”

Captain Yeniffer Cristina Ramirez Espinal: “We played well today, but just had no chance.”

Germany head coach Stefan Brauer: “We started poorly in the first set. I don’t know what happened. I think my players made many mistakes. The second set was very difficult. Dominicans are very strong. However, the win in the second set boosted our confidence and chances to come back. In the fourth set, we also fought well, but made unforced mistakes. Now, we have only one last stand in the championship. We have to go and watch the USA and Mexico play. We beat the USA before but have yet played Mexico. However, coming this far, I think we can play any team.”

Captain Anna Hoja: “We had to fight hard in the first and fourth set. However, after learning that my team won again, I’m very happy.”
