WCH 2018 M: Podrascanin – “We claimed a great victory over Russia”

by WoV

Serbia have scored a great win last night, beating the favorite number 1 Russia 3-2!



Tonight we claimed a great victory over a Russian team that many regarded as the strongest side in the world so far. We finished as the second-ranked team in this pool, which turned out to be very difficult indeed. We are very determined to do our utmost in the second round. We are very happy with the results we have achieved this far and are going to prepare to face Argentina, France and Poland. We look forward to playing in Bulgaria but we wish to come back to Italy the soonest possible,” says Marko Podrascanin, a middle blocker of Serbia.

It was really a hard task to us, especially from a psychological point of view. These five sets were all close. There is no doubt that we feel disappointed. We were very focused on this match. Unfortunately, our performance in Pool C did not live up to the expectations ahead of this tournament as we won the VNL earlier this summer,” says Sergei Shliapnikov, head coach of Russia.
