American captain Angela McGinnis: "We have a young and inexperienced team, that needs to play. We are developing our game. We are only starting our trajectory as a team and that is ever hard".
American head coach Hugh McCutcheon: "Germany played a great match today, specially in serving. That struggled our receiving. They were able to control the score during the whole match. We need to play in major competitions as the World Grand Prix to improve".
German captain Christiane Furst: "The match was not that easy as it looks to. The USA has a good organization as a team and we had to play really well to beat them. I am really excited for playing against Brazil, of my friend Jose Roberto Guimaraes, Mari and Sheilla".
German head coach Giovanni Guidetti: "I am pretty satisfied with German’s appearance. Even if the USA did not play the best level they can, we were focused since the first point. We played an important championship (FIVB World Championship Preliminary Round) ten days ago and I did not know how would be".
