Kosheleva praises coach, teammates

Press Conference

RUSSIA

Head Coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin: I am very happy to win, however each play in the game was not really satisfactory. The players could have done better. The reason we won the game was because our block worked well. Another reason is because China did not play their best today.

Captain Marina Sheshenina: First of all I am very glad to win today because we lost 3-2 to China in the first round. So this was revenge for us.

Tatiana Kosheleva: I think my teammates played a fantastic game. I would like to show my appreciation to our head coach for instructing us and to thank my teammates.

CHINA

Head Coach Cai Bin: We lost the game again, but my players did their best. We felt a lot of pressure against Russia over the net, and we could not block No. 15 (Kosheleva), whose spike was very good. Also we could not stop Gamova, who was strong from both sides. That is the reason why we lost today. Our serve and serve reception did not work well, and when the ball was in a rally we could not win the point. We want to make adjustments in the mistakes we made today.

Captain Wei Qiuyue: Our team’s weak point today was the action over the net, so we could not play well. We have lost every game, but I think one reason is every team in this competition is very strong. Our purpose for this competition is to challenge, and of course we still have confidence.
