In the training I told them this game is our life and play as if it is our last match. I am very happy with the result and to advance to 1-8 position brackets. Now I prepare the strategy to face Brazil in the last day of first round”.

Also all my teammate arrived to the hall very concentrated on the match and so played happily without losing the rhythm. This victory is a great moment for us and Dominican Republic Volleyball”.
Poland head coach Zbignew Krzyanowski
“We worked to be between the best eight in the championship, but today we did not play well. Also we were drawn in a very strong pool as there are three teams Brazil, Dominican and Poland are able to compete for the title. We faced a great team that never loses the control, also my team committed over the average errors. Dominican Republic surprised us and we could not react. Congratulations to them the qualification to the next round”.
