Laurent Tillie, coach of France: It was a strange match, maybe because of tiredness. However, we played very concentrated, we were very focused on our game and we use our frustration in good way. It was important, because in situation like this it is easy to lose. I think we played a good game and it is always important for us to win. I am surprised that we won match against Russia in three sets. In the the second set we were supposed to win easy, then we were about to lose it, but we fought for every chance and that is what I am asking from my players – to enjoy the moment, to try to give 100% of what you have.
Vladimir Alekno, coach of Russia: Unfortunately, we didn’t use our chances, nothing worked in our game. In volleyball it is like this – team which makes more mistakes always has to lose. Today we made more errors. We will try to improve our game before tomorrow’s match.
