Press Conference ITA vs. DOM
 

ITALY

Captain Francesca Gentili: "First of all congratulations to the Dominican team for a great match. We are very disappointed for not qualifying in the top eight. We made too many mistakes in our serves. We made a great comeback in the tie-breaker but it was not enough."

Head Coach Giuseppe Galli: "Is incredible. This is the first time we are not in the podium and I think this one is the strongest team I have coached. Congratulations to a Dominican team who played with a lot of determination."

Head Coach Enrique Larrazaleta: "It has been a great triumph against a country like Italy recognized as one of the powers of world volleyball. I want to congratulate to all my players who showed a lot of character and desire."
