FIVB Volleyball Girls' U18 World Championship

Press release

The final result counts, says Volero captain Onyejekwe


"I am very happy with tonight’s game", said Volero Zurich coach Jan de Brandt (right).

Zurich, Switzerland, October 10, 2013 – Host Volero Zurich kick started into the tournament by defeating Asian champions Guangdong Evergrande 3:1 (26-24, 25-21, 29-31, 25-21) on the second day of the 2013 FIVB Women’s Club World Championship in Zurich, Switzerland.

 

Volero Zurich coach Jan de Brandt: “I am very happy with tonight’s game. We had the chance to win 3-0 but temporarily lost focus in the third set. We made less pressure from the serving line and experienced some problems with the well-timed tips from the Chinese spikers. Anyway, it is a good start.”

Volero Zurich captain Nneka Onyejekwe: “It was a tough game tonight with two strong teams. We committed too many mistakes in the third set. China put more pressure on our defense. However, the final result counts.”

Guangdong Evergrande coach Lang Ping: “We played well on attack. Our outside hitters made a good job, but we experienced many problems in defence. We couldn’t block enough. We have to find us as a team. We don’t feel any pressure for the next games. We’re not the favourites.”

Guangdong Evergrande captain Ruoqi Hui: “It was a hard game for us today. We didn’t play that well. As we couldn’t train before the tournament, we sometimes experience problems with our automatisms. Zurich had very strong blockers tonight who made it difficult for us. But it’s not over now.”
