The outcome is – Belarus advanced to the quarterfinals.
“We are very happy since this is the first time in the history of the European Championship that Belarus have progressed to the quarterfinals. The team started badly against the Czech Republic, made quite some mistakes and as a result, I decided to change our tactics. Anastasiya Harelik moved to the opposite position and she played really well. She somehow turned into our ‘secret weapon’ but we have other surprises ready for the next opponent. Serbia await us in the quarterfinals and of course, our opponent is the favourite. However, if we play with courage, everything is possible.”
