Berlin, Germany, June 8, 2012 - Germany v India press conference

German coach Vital Heynen: 
“'m very happy with the victory. It was important for us to start this tournament with a 3-0, the success gives us confidence. The team showed a good performance and everyone could see they were having fun during the game.”
German captain Björn Andrae: “We had a very good start. Before the tournament none of the teams knew where it is standing. We didn´t have much information about India, therefore we are glad that it went so well. Regarding what comes next it was important for us to succeed with a clear 3-0, now we can await the match against Cuba tomorrow with a positive feeling.”
India coach G.E. Sridharan: 
“It is the first time for us being in Europe and participating in the Olympic-qualifying tournament. We had hoped to play better, but I´m still happy with my team. This tournament shows that we need more contests against European teams. “
India Captain Singh Gurinder: “Germany played very well, it's a very athletic and powerful team. We had too many big problems with our defence.”
