We got over-confident but fought back, says Russia coach


Russia's Alexandra Pasynkova wasn't happy with their performance

Ekateringburg, Russia, August 11, 2013 – Russia Head Coach Iuriy Marichev complimented his team’s ability to fight back after their 3-1 win over Cuba (25-17, 25-14, 16-25, 25-17) in their FIVB Grand Prix match on Sunday.

‘Today our confidence became self-confidence and you saw the result in the third set,” said Marichev. “There were many mistakes in the third set and we could not improve our game. The fourth set has also started unsuccessfully, but the players can find their game.

“It is very important for the team to do this. I can say that I am satisfied with the fourth set. It is wonderful when you win all matches. But for the team is important to compete with yourself and your competitor. To show your will to win.”

Russia player Alexandra Pasynkova added: “Today we did not play very well. We are not satisfied with our match. We made many mistakes. During a timeout our coach advised us to play fast and make not mistakes.”

Cuba Head Coach Juan Carlos Gala Rodriguez said: “Today we played much better then in our previous games. We are satisfied but not glad. We should win. We came not just to play volleyball, but for victory. The training plan for this young team is now completed, over two years. I think that we will show our volleyball.”
