USA

Head Coach
Before the match I asked my players to calm down in any situation during the match.
And their stability went all through the match and they showed good blocks. That's why we could win the match.

Captain
From the beginning, we did our very best and just kept fighting.

JPN

Head Coach
USA blocks disabled attacks of JPN. We tried to break their defence with stronger serves.
If it was successful, the result would have been better.

Captain
For this match we could not realize our own volleyball.
