AVITAL SELINGER (NETHERLANDS HEAD COACH): "We played not bad for a Sunday morning! I am very happy with the fighting spirit they showed."

INGRID VISSER (NETHERLANDS No. 15, CAPTAIN): "Although we made many mistakes, especially in the second set, overall we did a wonderful job."

MARCO BONITTA (ITALY HEAD COACH): "It was a game we should have won 3-0, but the third set proved to be crucial. I think the players were a little tired, but they never gave up even when they were behind."

ELEONORA LO BIANCO (ITALY No. 14): "It is difficult to express my feelings. Even though we won the first and second sets, we could not take advantage of this."
