“Italy made a very, very strong game today. Our team was far from its best and although we showed some energy and skill in the third set, it was not enough to win and qualify for the final”, Bojan Janic, captain of Serbia, stated after the match.

We are very happy about the victory, because Serbia is always a tough opponent”, his Italian counterpart Cristian Savani said. ”Today we showed our best volleyball and made it clear that we are ready for tomorrow’s battle for the first place.

Igor Kolakovic, head coach of Serbia, commented: “Today Italy was better than us and deserved to win. We managed to play at a satisfactory level for just one set, which was obviously not enough for a positive result.  The tournament is over for us and we are turning our minds to the next chances for qualifying for the Olympics and to the World League.”  Italian mentor Mauro Berruto was pleased with the result:  “We are happy that we won and moved on to the next and final step here. Six months ago our two teams met in the final of the CEV European Championship and we lost, but today we got our rematch. We are motivated to give our best tomorrow, whoever our opponent is going to be.
