With the score being 17-17, Zhukouski and his teammates were able to turn things around. Leo Andric was shining on the block, scoring a break point at 19-17, and continued with his good performance on the net in the minutes after.

- Leo Andric topped the charts with 30 points to his name, becoming best scorer of the match.
"We had two really bad first sets, we weren't doing the things that we were supposed to. We improved in the third set, showed better skills in defence, and picked up some new balls. We let some unforced errors affect our game in the last part. We will hope for better achievements next week."
Edvin SVÄRD, player Sweden
"After losing to the Netherlands, it was really important to win today's game. I think Sweden surprised us and showed some really good game, but we managed to get things under control. We put up a real fight and showed strong character, so everything worked fine for us in the end."
