Chinese Coach: A good match played by my team.The opposing players of this evening were stronger but we were coming out from matches which weren't hard. Chinese Captain: we suffered from the hot climate but now we are getting used. We didn't play a bad match but we didn't live the fundamental moments.
Russian Coach: it was a match that we had to win to enter the final championship. I am glad of the team performance especially in blocks. The surrounding situation was better than the previous days one.
Russian Captain: good match. A physiological tension drop during the match never changed the final result. Now in the second phase we will try to perform better.
