Russia coach Yury Marichev: Today was a very interesting match and in the end we were able to win in the fifth set. But we made many mistakes in attack and I think Turkey made good preparation to counter our strong points, our wing spikers. They prevented us from making more successful attacks.
Russia No. 1 Iana Shcherbany: It was a tough game. We had difficult balls in attack and didn’t do very well, but congratulations to Turkey who did a very good defensive job. I hope we can connect as a team and play better next time.
(Re. challenge system): If it’s the right decision, it’s very good, but sometimes you trust it and other times you don’t. But today everything was good.
Turkey captain Gozde Sonsirma: Congratulations to Russia. We did a bad job in the first two sets, but we did a very good job in the other three sets.
