Iban Perez added 15 points against his name and became the best scorer of the match. Vlado Nikolov was Bulgaria’s top scorer with his 10 points from the first two sets. “I am glad that we finished the pool with a straight-set win, which will motivate us even more,” he said after the match. ”We managed to limit our mistakes and played calmer than our opponent. The big difference in today's match came from our stable blocking and offense. That is why we won relatively easy. I want to thank the terrific Bulgarian fans for their support. It will get harder and harder for us as of tomorrow, so we will need their love more than ever.”



Spanish captain Guillermo Hernan Ruperez congratulated the Bulgarian team for the level they are showing in this whole tournament.  ”We were having some deep problems with our block and attack today and deservedly lost”, he said.  ”We came here to try to win a spot at the Olympics, but we failed.  After all we must stay positive and be happy about the experience we got from our games here.

This game was easier for Bulgaria than it should have been”, coach Fernando Muňoz Benitez stated.  ”The result came from our inefficient block and attack.  We did not put enough pressure on our opponents.  We are happy that we were part of that tournament.  During these days we developed individually and together as a team”. “This victory was on our to-do list and we wanted it very much”, a satisfied Stoytchev said. ”We knew that Spain has a very tricky serve and good reception, so we were careful.  Tomorrow’s game against Germany is a completely different story.  We need to recover as fast as possible.  To qualify for the final we need concentration, motivation and  a little more on top of that.
