Ze Roberto: ‘Unbelievable’ to sweep China

Smiles before the Press Conference


Head Coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: Of course I am very happy with the performance of my team. We played very well in all the situations of the match – serve, block and counter attack. We did a very good job this night. It is important; to beat China 3-0 is unbelievable because China is a very good team. They are young but I think we are young, too. Thank you to my players because they played with heart and very good character.

Captain Dani Lins: We could play our own style as we planned. The reason we could win is because we could prevent China from playing their own game. The third set was very difficult, so I am glad to win.

Sheilla Castro: Yesterday we played with ups and downs, but today we could play more constantly. And especially we had good service.


Head Coach Cai Bin: Today Brazil was too strong and their attack and receive worked well, and they had a good rhythm. I saw Brazil-Russia yesterday and I think Brazil played more constant than yesterday. Their spikes have a lot of variety and I feel there is a difference between our team and Brazil. The players of China are still young so I think we have potential to be better.

Captain Wei Qiuyue: We had some chances to win (the third set), so I am very sorry to lose the game. It is always difficult against Brazil, so we practiced harder.

Xue Ming: Today we could not play our style well, especially after serving and receiving we were lacking attack power.
