Numerous home supporters expected an easy third set, but Turkey proved once more they came to EuroVolley to win, not just to participate.

Errors leading to points of TURKEY, next to those from SLOVENIA

"We played really good in the first set, made only a couple of mistakes that we should kill. If we did those, we would have won the first set. In the second set we have had a little breakdown but we came back in the third so that was good. We have to mentally come back now and prepare for the next matches."

Adis Lagumdzija
opposite (TUR)

"They are a good team and had one advantage playing at home. They have very good fans, that is why there were one step ahead of us in the critical moments. We were fighting well but that was not enough for them. We have two more games and we will focus on that now."

Baturalp Burak Gungor
outside-spiker (TUR)

"Turkish team is very strong, we knew that. We had been tired at the beggining of the game. Then we came back and played with consistence. We had some problems with servis so we had to be stronger in side-out. Through all the game we belived in our victory. Every game we have to adapt to the style of the game that is necessary for the day. Even if our game wasn't phenomenal, we won."

Tine Urnaut
outside-spiker and team captain (SLO)

"I hope this fantastic atmosphere will continue in next matches. Turks proved to be hard and relentless opponent. We knew that. Today’s mental preparation was very good. We pulled out important points at the end of the sets, had important counters and managed to emerge victorious."

Klemen Čebulj
outside-spiker (SLO)

"After bad start we made a double substitution and turned the first set around. I am very happy for Gregor and Tonček, because it is very dangerous to lose the first set. But we won in the end, so evertyhing is OK. It was tough also in the third set, but that was not a surprise, because Turkey played very well."

Alberto Giuliani
head coach (SLO)
