"All we have is our conscience and we played for it", Brazilian coach Rezende said

Bulgaria's coach Silvano Prandi: "Today was a huge disapointment for Bulgarian Volleyball. I am very sorry for all my players and their hard work. They fought till the end but we could not make it. We gave all we are capable of at this point. Congratulations for Brazil and good luck on the Final Round. I regret not qualifying because it is experience and more matches under pressure before the World Championship."

Bulgaria's captain Vladimir Nikolov: "Brazil was better today. Again. They demonstrated great play and shown us why they are the best in the world. They made less mistakes and were more concentrated at the end of the sets. Unfortunately we did not make it. I am sorry for the boys."

Brazil's coach Bernardo Rezende: "A tough and tense match again. I knew it would be like this. Bruno had some problems and we were forced to play with Marlon but he did well. We have amazing outside hitters - Murilo, Dante and Giba which he can play nice. I am satisfied with the quality of Volleyball tonight. We demonstrated that we are willing to fight till the end. I don't want to put my self on Bulgarians chair. They lost a great fight and they fought till the end. But that's that. We are obliged for our people, our fans to be the best and win. Anyway - that is what we have at the end - our conscience. Here we had two amazing tests before the Final Round."

Brazil's captain Giba: "A great match again. I am so happy that we won even though we were changing players and managed to keep the same level. It was important for us to win so to be ready for Cordoba."
