"Italy's reception is not that good and it's a wrong idea to have Angela as the libero," says Thai head coach.

Thailand head coach Sanong Kulchim: “We are fortunate that we studied the Italy’s tap and their statistics before the match. I think their reception is not that good and it posed a serious problem for their loss. I think that Italy had a wrong idea to use Angela Gabbiadini as a libero as her reception is not good.  Fioriana Bertone is tall, but moves slowly. We played hard against Italy. In the fourth set, my girls played inconsistently. We need experience to solve such problem.”

Captain Sutadta Chuewulim: “It’s good to beat Italy after we lost to them before. We did our best today and I’m satisfied with my team’s performance.”

Italy head coach Maurizio Moretti: “It’s a hard match. Thailand played well, especially their blocking. We had the main problem that we could not overcome their blockers. Thailand played much better than us. We beat them before, but not this time. They came back stronger. Actually, Sara Carrara is sick and now stays in the hotel. We then had to replace her position with Angela Gabbiadini. In this championship, we found that there are many teams which are much stronger than us such as Brazil, Serbia, Belgium and Turkey. We still need more to learn.”

Captain Letizia Camera: “We played well, but it was just because Thailand played much better. We have no match against their blocking.”
