#EuroVolleyW

"We are really happy that we started the tournament with a victory. We have a very young team and face strong opponents in our pool, so our task is not easy. Today we were not perfect but I think we were extremely good, especially in the first and third sets. It is definitely a good start for us. We have to play well against Finland and Greece. They won many games as well in the qualifiers in order to be here. We will try to enjoy every game and to get better and better."

Day 1 Recap

Play

"We lost the game because we played extremely bad. France absolutely deserved to win because they delivered a very consistent performance from the start to the end of the match. It is difficult for us to find the rhythm required to play at this level. This is why we lost today. From now on, we are only searching for victories because starting with a loss means that it becomes increasingly difficult for us to stay in this championship."

Elitsa Vasileva
Captain of Bulgaria
