Gladys NASIKANDA (KEN) - middle blocker

"The match was good. In relation to our other matches, we tried our best."

Marco BONITA (ITA) - head coach

"Technically, it was an easy game, but tough mentally. We played well and I am satisfied with my team's players' mental approach."

Violet BARASA (KEN)

"Our team made a good start, but then we could not keep our rhythm. We made many mistakes and that's why we have lost out confidence. Despite the results we feel like winners at this tournament. We are participating in a very important competition. We have much more experience now and surely feel ready to keep on trying for Kenyan Volleyball".

Francesca PICCININI (ITA) - wing spiker

"We played well and we were concentrated on our goal during the match and that is what we must do in the forthcoming matches. We are here to win a medal and I believe that apart from us; Russia, Brazil and Cuba are the favorites to step on the podium."
