"North Macedonia are a good team, but we fought better than them and we won. Our focus was really good today. We look forward to the next match against the home team. We still need to improve our serve. If we serve better it will be easier for us to win."

"In the first two sets we were really close to the opponent. I think that the main reason for our defeat was our lack of experience and patience. After all, this is our first European Championship. We've had two chances already and what follows is to enjoy the tournament and I hope that we will perform better in the next matches."

"It was a tough game. In the key moments our concentration failed and that showed in the final result."
