Belgian volleyball team was more than satisfied with the win over France in FIVB World League.

Dominique Baeyens, coach of Belgium – “Yesterday we were not very good, but everyone had a lot of confidence. We think France had won 20 out of 21 matches, so we have stopped that. In the second set we made a few changes, got a new setter who was more creative.”

Laurent Tillie, coach of France – “It is the rule, but it is a stupid rule. There are five people sitting at the desk and a referee to watch all of this, but they can’t do it. After that ruling it was tough. We had been confident, and coming back from 8-0, it is tough.

Sam Deroo, captain of Belgium – “For the first time in my life we had got an 8-0 lead for free. We got a lucky break, and we took the opportunity. We played at a good level. We cannot say it was undeserved, but also France deserved more than this.”

Kèvin Tillie, wing spiker of France – “It’s frustrating losing like this, I think that everyone is frustrated. But the rules are the rules, what can we do? Next week we will have to come back together and play a tough tournament in Poland.
