"This time we did not miss our chance" says Japanese coach Ogawa

Italy’s captain Letizia Camera: “We did not play our match at all. In front of their solid reception we lost some confidence and also the right focus, so Japan finally deserved this victory”.

Coach Maurizio Moretti: “My girls still lack of experience and therefore for them it is not that easy to play a team like Japan that stands out in reception as they did today. Our attack and block were not effective at all today and this is the kind of trouble we can not really afford. Anyway, Japan deserved this victory; we are learning a lot in this Championship and I am sure that this group of girls has a huge margin of improvement”.

Japan’s captain Chisato Mitsuyama: “I am very happy, this time we did not miss the final rallies in a close ending of the set as we did in the match against Serbia”

Coach Yoshiki Ogawa: “That game was similar to that we played against Serbia, but this time Italy missed some balls in the decisive rallies and that helped us a lot. I know the girls were very nervous, especially because they thought they might have been going through similar bad times as they did against the Serbians”.
