Stephane Antiga said: “I am so happy with this victory because as both captains said, it was our best game. It was an important game to qualify for the Finals, we needed the victory. We really had to win. I liked the behavior of my players in the context of the pressure here. It was our best game because it is very difficult to win here against a strong team like Iran. A lot of teams lose here because of the incredible atmosphere. It is very difficult. As Kubiak said, our opposite had not played before. I am very proud of how he [Jarosz) played tonight. He had really strong reactions. He was very aggressive, very positive, and very efficient. With this kind victory, we are stronger because of its impact on our team spirit.”

Iranian coach Slobodan Kovač said: “Congratulations to Poland. They played well and they won. We started the first set very well. After that, in the second and third sets, we made mistakes especially with our spikes. At this level, we cannot make these mistakes. When we play against a team like Poland, we must put them under pressure with our serves and tonight we did not play that well. I am sorry because our fantastic fans gave us so much energy; tonight we did not use that energy.”
