I’m very happy with our qualification for the Final Four in Rotterdam. Even if we won all our pool games without losing a set we were well aware that every team in this stage is difficult to beat. And since we didn’t play at our best, we had a lot of troubles to beat Germany. Luckily I could count on all my substitutes, such as Gözde Yilmaz, who scored two very important winning serves at the end of the tie break,” commented the coach of Turkey Ferhat Akbas.

I’m disappointed about the result, of course. But I can’t blame my team; the ladies played very well today against such a strong opponent. It’s a bit frustrating that we lost all our important games in five sets: 2:3 against Poland in the quarterfinals of the Baku 2015 European Games, 2:3 in Stuttgart against Turkey in the FIVB World Grand Prix and one more 2:3 today. But this proves that our young team is closing in on the European top teams,” stated the coach of Germany Luciano Pedullà.
