Brazil coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: First of all, congratulations to my team for the way they played today. I am very happy about the result, especially after we lost yesterday's match and lost two main players. Today we had some great serves, and also did well in blocking. We played consistently. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum up.

captain Eleonora Lo Bianco:
We are in a very difficult moment. We need to find the reason why we played so bad. I don't know why.


Italy coach Massimo Barbolini: Congratulations to the Brazilian team, who taught us a lesson today. The loss is a shame for me and for my team. Every team have some difficult moments. Our national team didn't fight for all the match. I am sorry for the Italian fans who watched the match. Today is a very bad moment for the Italian team. Brazil are a very good team. It is normal if you lose 3-0 to Brazil. But we didn't try our best, I am really sorry for this.
