“Russia are a team of world-class champions, one of the best teams at this Championship if not even the best. They are the best team in our pool. We are satisfied how we played. We played as a team. We had a few series of mistakes, with five, six errors, which should not happen this level. If we improve the reception, we have good chances against North Macedonia tomorrow.”

Adis Lagumdzija
opposite (TUR)

"It was very tough to start the first match of the championship. All team was a little bit worried about the result, that's why we had good motivation to win. We won the first set very easy and in the second set we were relaxed, which is why we lost it. It was a cold shower, we needed to improve our game and concentration. Everyone felt more confident in third and fourth set."

Dmitriy Muserskiy
middle-blocker (RUS)

"It was first game and we were a little bit nervous. We started a bit slowly and did not find our best game and best conditions. It was tough, not easy. But after second set we won really confidently, and we are happy to go straight. Today it was very important to find our game and start this championship to find our level. "

Igor Kobzar
setter and team captain (RUS)

"In the first match we are searching our play rhythm. We served pretty well today, serve and reception were a lot better in the opening, but in the second set, probably after easy first set and we were winning in the second set, we had a few minutes of lack of concentration, like always in volleyball, it becomes difficult. But I am happy that we lost the second set because we did not deserve to win it. Then the team played really focused and we won with confidence."

Tuomas Sammelvuo
head coach (RUS)
