“This is a very important victory for us, even though this was again far from an ideal performance. At least, we can say that we could rise to the occasion – and when it did matter the most, we did eventually deliver! Our loss to Turkey was more due a psychological problem on our side, since we know we have not come here with our best roster. However, we analysed that game and changed tactics – but there is definitely still plenty of room for improvement.”

Outside hitter of Russia
