Germany coach Giovanni Guidetti: Our team fought till the very end.

USA coach Hugh McCutcheon said his side have improved so far in the tournament
Germany coach Giovanni Guidetti: “Congratulations to the USA team! The USA team has good quality players.The USA team had powerful serves, quick attacks and especially concrete blocking, which was our main concern. In the first set, our team was afraid of their blocking and serving, therefore committed many errors in our attacks. However, I like how our players persisted till the end and this match against USA is certainly a good opportunity to prepare for the next European Championship.”

Germany captain Christiane Furst: “This match was really incredible. We played a really tough and difficult game. We tried to come back in the third set and played against this great team till the very last point.”

USA coach Hugh McCutcheon: “We had very strong defence and did very well on the service line. I am very satisfied with my players’ performance today. They played better than before and achieved our goal of keep improving. Germany is a very strong team and we are happy to win! We have to get ready now for tomorrow’s match against Italy.”

USA captain Jennifer Tamas: “There were good volleyball players on both sides. We were good at serving, and I am sure the Hong Kong fans will appreciate the defence and attacks from both teams and enjoy the game we played.”
