It's not the end: Russian coach

Russia coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin said the side need to learn something from today's game
Russia coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin: "As I said at the press conference on Wednesday, Korea is a very good team. We lost today, but it's not the end. This is a long tournament, so we have to keep same level for each game. But we have to learn something from today's game. Even though we lost today, we won't feel down because of it. We want to go to the Final Round and I hope Korea can do that too."

Russia No. 11 Ekaterina Gamova: "We lost the game, but it's not a tragedy. We had many misses which was because of our bad play."

Korea coach Kim Hyung-Sil: "It was hard to overcome Russia's height and power. We were able to win because we played as a team and because we have a strong desire to go to Macau. Today, every time there was a crisis, Kim Yeon-Koung got us back into our rhythm. Our team followed her lead and I'm proud of the way she played today."

Korea No. 10 Kim Keon-Young: "I thought Russia would be a strong opponent and it would be an important match. We didn't give up to the end. We still have some weak points but we were in more harmony than usual today. We scored as a team – not just me – and that's why we won."
