Head coach of Italy, Luca Pieragnoli:

"The entire game was extremely nervous and because of that both teams did not what they are used to. Too many mistakes were made. We had goog and bad times in the match and fortunately we managed to remobilize ourselves in the tie-breaker in which our spiking improved a lot. Now we wait for the drawing of lots, but basically there is no difference for me against whom to play".

Captain of the Italian team, Veronica Angeloni:

"We are all extremely happy. During the game we made a lot of mistakes, especially in service. Also our spiking worked poorly , except for the fifth set".

Vladimir Pech, head coach of the Czech Republic:

"First of all let me congratulate the Italians. They played very well and I wish them all the best in the following games. nevertheless I claim that we lost also because of the first referee who took us away four points in the opening set and in the following ones he made many misjudgements as well. That broke my players down, visibly".
