USA’s coach Karch Kiraly admitted his team played at its best in the tournament against Serbia but reminded everyone about his previous predictions that no team will leave the strong Pool B undefeated.

Foluke Akinradewo, the middl blocker of USA after the match against Serbia said: “I am really proud of my team. We played with better rhythm than in the other two matches. We are the first team to qualify to the next round and that is good for our confidence but now we have to focus on Italy, our next opponent. Definitely I am happy with the victory and the overall performance of the team.”

On the other side Rachael Adams, added: “Hats off to Serbia, they really played a great match. They pushed us and I think we pushed each other. You couldn’t ask for a better game than two teams going at it. It was a really balanced match. We were going back and forth and we were taking some great swings and so are we. There was a very great atmosphere to play in. There was really good volleyball tonight. Serbia are a great team and they’re going to come at us. They have great middle blockers and they are doing a great job. We have to be creative when attacking against their block. They were serving really well and they started tipping a lot.”
