Bulgaria beat Finland in straight sets and this is what the Bulgarian coach said about the game:

It was the best possible start. We got maximum from the match as a result but we could perform better in our next games especially on the net. The team of Finland did not risk a lot. It looked like they prefer long rallies but we managed to get most of them and to win at the end,” says Konstantinov.

We played, we fought, for example, Bulgaria managed to block us only once, but at the end, we lost. Our opponent was better in serving and reception and it was the main key point of the game. We will prepare normally for our next game. We will pay attention to our physical shape. We have enough time to get ready for the following games,“ explains Tuomas Sammelvuo, coach of Finland.
