'I don't want to make up the history to something, that wasn't here.'

Press conference after the game Poland vs Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic captain: 'We started the game very well, then Poland made some adjustments and from the second set Dominican team was not the same. I think Poland is a great team, they made a lot of changes this year and improved a lot.

Poland captain: 'We are very happy that we won today. I think we analyzed yesterday's mistakes and improved a lot. The team looked better in defense and reception, the setters could do whatever they want.'

Dominican Republic head coach: 'Today's match was more or less like yesterday's. We've started well in reception and service. We have to get used to this, we have a lot of changes in the squad. We have been playing against a lot of very strong and experienced teams but I understand that it is a part of developing and I hope we will improve.'

Poland head coach: 'This match was very good for us. We had to fight just in the first set, the next two were easy for our team. I don't have much to say, I don't want to make up the history to something, that wasn't here. In the second set the Dominicans tried a little, but in the third one the coached changed the line-up and it didn't work. I think there is some tactics for the future in this, but it is not my business, I'm happy we 3-0 and saved some power for tomorrow's game with the USA. The Americans is a very unique team, they play like they were training, not playing in the important tournament. Tall girls block and spike very light, and it looks like they were playing with volleyball. They are calm. Their physical parameters are amazing, so I don't know yet what we are going to do tomorrow. We will definitely be very determined.'
