Bulgaria's coach Prandi enjoys "three golden points"

Powerfull attackers for Bulgaria were the main reason for their victory over Korea
Silvano Prandi, Bulgaria's coach: "To be honest, I am very glad with this victory. We won an important but very difficult match. Spectators, players, coaches and everybody involved made it possible for a great Volleyball spectacle. Korea played a very good match with only 10% mistakes involved. They made it difficult for us. However I am satisfied that with 62% in attack and our spikers at the highest level we managed to win at the end. It was a high level match and three golden points for us."

Vladimir Nikolov, Bulgaria's captain: "I am happy that we won. It is obligatory to congratulate Korea for the brilliant match played today. They surprised us with efficient serving and their selfless play in defence. It was good that we withstood the pressure and won at the end."

Chi Yong Shin, Korea's coach: "Today our players put in a very good performance and we missed the opportunity to win the match. Probably some better reception would have helped us and would have brought us a better result. The main reason for the defeat today was exactly that. In future we should not miss the chance to win the first set. It might provide us some more strength to win the match at the end."

Tae Woong Choi, Korea's captain:"It was a very close match. We are very sorry for losing it. If our digging was better we might have been able to take it to a tie break and succeed eventually. We are looking forward to improving our play."
