Article - Pool A Preview

"Our goal is growing up, match by match. We knew it was a very difficult group. For most of us it is the first time in a European Championship so we look forward to the French atmosphere."

Marco Ferreira

"I think we will have a good fight. Portugal can play very hard with good outside hitters. It will be a tough game. Earvin Ngapeth is doing better, he will do more during the warm-up but it is longer than we thought."

"It was very important for us to win this game 3-0. We played really good in the first set, but after this Portugal started to play better. Both Bulgaria and Italy are good teams and we look forward to those matches. We all have a lot of friends in both sides, so it will be interesting."

"I feel sad about the result of course, but I think at this moment France are playing really well whereas we still need to work on a lot of things. Yet we hope we'll come up with something better in the last two games. I don't want to find any excuse."

"I'm happy that I was called in to play yesterday, to really get into the competition, and today I played too so pressure is off. The Bulgarian middle blockers might be tough to handle but we fear nobody."
