Italy coach Mauro Berruto praised the “phenomenal” spiker Ivan Zaytsev as his side beat Poland 3-1 (25-22, 20-25, 25-23, 25-20) in Bari on Friday night.



It was a victory with a double sense because the other matches was more simple to play,” he said. “Zaytsev was phenomenal – he resolved a lot of points in moments of difficulty.”

Captain Emanuele Birarelli added: “Their opposite, Bociek had a great match and we struggled to stop him. But with a great deal of heart we were able to ovecome the difficulty and win the match.”

Polish coach Stéphane Antiga said: “I like how we faced this match. We were able to be head to head with Italy most of the time”.

Polish captain Lukasz Zygadlo said: “We played very well. But our lack of experience made the Italian victory possible.”
