coach Park Ki-Won
“The reason why we lost today’s match
was the serves and blocks of Italy. They did a great job. Our players
tried to serve as strong as possible. During the first set, our
service worked well, but from the middle of the second set, our
players could not control their minds. Korea made a lot of mistakes
captain Kwon Young-Min
“It is always hard to play Italy.
Their service was very strong and the strong service made a lot of
reception problems. At the middle of the second set, our attacks were
frequently blocked by the Italian players. I think because of those
two reasons, we lost today’s match. I hope tomorrow’s match
will be better than today”
captain Cristian Savani
match was hard because of the time difference. Nevertheless, I am
really happy with today's victory."
coach Berruto Mauro
expected our players' condition to be bad because of the flight delay
and time difference. Today's match was a matter of pride and the game
was very important for us. However, I thought today's match might be
difficult after we lost the first set. But we recovered our
confidence in the second set. And it finally brought our victory."
