Flier: It was hard work to win

Press Conference

NETHERLANDS

Head Coach Avital Selinger: It was very difficult to win this game because Germany played very well and is an organized team, especially the setter, who is smart and always making the game. Their defence and serve is very good. Germany is a powerful team. To beat Germany we had to have a fighting spirit, but this is not easy. Germany is one of the top volleyball teams in Europe. At the start of the game we did not play very well, but in the end we were able to win.

Captain Manon Flier: It has been a tough fight like it was yesterday and I am really glad we won another match. I think it was nice for the visitors to see a match like this. It was not always nice volleyball; it was hard work but both sides played with their heart. I am proud of my team.

GERMANY

Head Coach Giovanni Guidetti: It was a very difficult match. I want to thank my coaching staff for everything in supporting the team. In every difficult situation Holland put the ball on the floor. I think Holland have a lot of experience and that is why we lost the game. I hope in two or three years we can be like the Holland team.

Captain Christiane Furst: I want to thank Holland for a great match today. I am only glad that at least we could play to our maximum and concentrate. I am happy it was a good fight.
