“Now we are looking forwards to meet Bulgaria,” says Germany coach

Mexico captain Xitali speaking during the press conference

Germany head coach Han Abbing
“Mexico demonstrated their quality today, besides being a motivated team they have the excellent fans support. We could finish the second round without a defeat and that is important. Now we will begin from the tomorrow training to prepare for our semifinal match against Bulgaria which we know a strong team to face”

Germany captain Sarah Petrausch
“We could obtain this victory in this difficult match because Mexico is playing in their house and they play very well too. We could work the block and improve the service after slow start in the first set. My team was not well concentrated at the beginning of each set”.

Mexico head coach Ricardo Naranjo
“I consider that today only we played the first set, Germany played in more concentration the entire match and for that reason they obtained the result. I hoped that we could fight more. I excuse to our fans for the bad demonstration of my team today. I hope the team focuses for the final two matches”,

Mexico captain Xitali Herrera
“We committed many errors; in addition we did not play with the necessary attitude to start the second set. The second and third sets were very bad for us. I am not happy as we finished this round at the bottom of our pool. We must concentrate for next the two games and make the adjustments. I’m disappointed because of our performance today. My teammates and me didn’t fight well like the last matches”.
