Our girls fight a lot during the entire match. We had a clear improvements in attacking and receiving. If we continue on this mood I believe the success will arrive very soon.

Even if we had an improvements, we payed in experience. Especially in the tie break. The success went to the Germans but I am very confident about the future of my team.

In the first set we played a very good volleyball. Then our opponents had a great improvement in second and third set with our mistakes. Fortunately the first victory at the end came.
