lavio Gulinelli, head coach of Slovakia:  “The guys were really good tonight.  We were really working good in the relation between serve, block and defense.  Nevertheless, we had some problems in reception, but our serve was in condition to keep the level of our attack high.  Tomorrow we have another difficult match because the Hungarians have nothing to lose and playing without tension they can be really dangerous.”

Sotirios Drikos, head coach of Greece:  “I believe for our team it was a difficult day because after a lot of years we are playing a series of crucial matches in our capital.  And for this reason, especially our young players were a little bit stressed today.  I think today it was a good step for us.  We now have two more difficult and decisive matches ahead, but I think we are ready for them.”
