"I asked to my players to take more risks on serve" - Placi

Bulgaria coach Camillo Placi said it was "a very good game, for both sides"

Metz, France, June 9, 2013 - France v Bulgaria press conference

Laurent Tillie, France coach: "I'm not as disappointed as I was after the first game on Friday night. For the first two sets, both teams played an excellent volleyball. I've seen some very interesting and promising things on my side. In the third set, my players were exhausted. But it's very promising. We need to keep our confidence on a high level to continue to improve."

Benjamin Toniutti, France captain: "We started well, we played a good game for the first two sets. But we did some mistakes on the money time. Bulgaria could keep a strong and solid volleyball from the first to the last point. We couldn't. We had some opportunity but we failed.

Camillo Placi, Bulgaria coach: "It was a very good game, for both sides. The level of the game was amazing during the first two sets. Tonight, I asked to my players to take more risks on serve, bacause they need to improve in this part of our game. They  did 24 mistakes, but I'm quite pleased the way they served.

Todor Aleksiev, Bulgaria captain: "We did less mistakes tonight than ion the first game. We have been good in reception, something always tough against France. But I have to admit that the score doesn't speak by himself tonight. The first two sets have been o lot more intense and uncertain than you can see on the scoreboard."
