Press Conference
 
Press Conference BEL vs. IND
 

BELGIUM

Captain Bram Van den Dries: "I am disappointed by the loss. The Indian team was a little bit better than us today. But we did not have the fighting spirit, otherwise the match would have been closer."

Head Coach Emile Rousseaux: ""My team looked a little tired at the end and still has not recovered from our trip. But India played better and you have to have strong mentality to win matches and they showed that."

INDIA

Captain Mandeep Singh: "We prepared our strategy very well. Our team has been training and playing together for the last three months and today we did an excellent job."

Head Coach Bir Singh Yadav: "We have seen Belgium last night against Mexico and we knew we had to serve strong to stop them from having a good reception. Our serves worked well and because of that we had better chance to block their tall players. I hope Mandeep keeps playing like today during the rest of the tournament. He is a very important player for us."
