No solution to the russian block

Tomasz Kowalski, Captain of Poland: “We definitely played worse than yesterday. We played bad all the basic elements. The block of the Russian team is the best of this Championship and we also faced some problems with attack”.

Ivan Nikishin, Captain of Russia: “This was not our first match against Poland. It was not an easy match for us. I think all of us gave their best. During the third set we were probably a bit nervous but we were conscious that we could make it and actually we managed to win it”.

Grzegorz Rys, Coach of Poland: “First of all I would like to give my congratulations to the Russian team. Their block is perfect and we could not find a solution. I think during the first three sets it was a real good fight, unfortunately the last set we lost the concentration. We have to work more to solve some problems. We had already played against Russia before but that was not enough to win against them today”.

Sergej Shlyapnikov, Coach of Russia: “I would like to give my congratulations to the Polish team, too. Poland is one of the strongest teams in the world. The Polish team has shown its potentials but we were stronger. Every team of our pool plays really well. Our team is not giving its best, we are not enough concentrated. Our setter has been playing with the team for just two weeks therefore we need to practice playing with him to get better”.
