Brazilian coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes after the match: It was not an easy game. Japan has good technique and concentration and a good variety of combinations. They are good at seeking out our weak points and attacking them, so it was hard to win today. I like Kimura and Ebata and Nagaoka is powerful and has good technique. Shinnabe is also a good player.

Masayoshi Manabe coach of Japan: We were OK up to the second technical timeout but then we started dropping points as Brazil improved its block. There’s a big difference between Japan and Brazil because the Brazilians are so tall and have longer arms; this difference is especially noticeable in spiking and blocking.
