"We almost played a perfect match" says Brazilian captain Rosane

Brazil’s captain Rosane Maggioni: “We played a very good match with consistency and just a few mistakes. It worked out as we had planned before this semifinal. For tomorrow’s final I do not have any special wish, we’ll be waiting for the winner of the second semi, that’s all”.

Coach Luizomar de Moura: “Semifinals are always very stressful and I am happy with the way we have been going through the match. Now we have to prepare for the final, especially psychologically, we are dealing with teenagers and for them it is not that easy to cope with the anxiety and stress deriving from so important tasks”.

Turkey’s captain Ceren Kestirengoz: “I am really disappointed, Brazil is a very strong team but I think we had some chances to win the game. We made some silly mistakes in the key moments and that made the difference. We did a very hard preparation and training, so we’ll play with all our hearts to clinch at least the bronze medal”.

Coach Ismail Yengil: “The turning point of the match: the mistakes we made in the key moments of all three sets. Tomorrow we’ll for the bronze, these girls deserve a medal after all their efforts”.
