Press Conference
One sweet revenge for Poland


Captain Bram Van den Dries: "The setter of Poland (Fabian Drzyzga) is one of the best. He reads the block very well. We battled hard and we lost to a great team as the Poland is."

Head Coach Emile Rousseaux: "The difference was very close as it was yesterday. We prepared very well and my team played good ball at the beginning, but the Polish team changed tactics and they had to react the way they are supposed. We had to go to other solutions to change the initial plan. On the other hand, I am satisfied with the fighting spirit my team showed in the fourth set. Today we played against the silver medallists of Europe and lost 3-2."


Captain Maciej Krzywiecki: "We lost 3-1 to Belgium in our Pool during the European Championship so this victory comes as a sweet revenge. The match was very tough and we played against a great team."

Head Coach Karol Janaszewski: "This was a very important match for us because now we have the chance to go further. The big battle of the fourth set, somehow prepared our team for the fifth. I liked the way my team fought when behind in the score. Congratulations to the Belgium team for a battled match."
