Italy beat Germany 3-0 (25-23, 25-22, 25-23) - duration 1:20
25-Jun, start time: 20:00, end time: 21:20 - Attendance: 2'600
City: Reggio Calabria; Hall : Palacalafiore
Marco Bonitta (Italy - coach)
Germany played very good volleyball. And very smart. Slow pace but at the end we reached the best result. A 3-0 is always a 3-0, after all. Even with a non perfect game.

Eleonora Lo Bianco (Italy - captain)
Germany tried to put us in trouble since the very beginning of the game. Our best point was to remain positive in the finals of each sets where we won the decisive points.

Lee Hee Wan (Germany - coach)
We must work hard to arrive at our best potential and the road is long to correct our problems. I was satisfied of the behaviour of the team trying to face Italy without any fear.

Cornelia Dumler (Germany - captain)
We risked everything trying to win. That's especially in the set finals. Unfortunately some serving errors conditioned our result. The final result is not the one we expected.
