Day 2 Recap

Play

"3000 spectators gave the rhythm of the game, it was a volleyball show tonight, not only a volleyball game. After we lost the second set, we started to play as a team, and our offense improved a lot. Our goal is to reach the eighth-finals, tonight we got a little bit closer to achieve this."

Diana Lorena BALINTONI
Setter of Romania

Adelina BUDAI-UNGUREANU, outside spiker of Romania:


"It was fantastic to play in this athmosphere, even though that they were only screaming and cheering for Hungary. It was a really entertaining game, both teams were so
motivated. We moved better in defense than the Hungarians, and our spike was on fire tonight."

"First of all, I would like to say thank you for all the fans in the arena. The young Hungarian players were under pressure, we could play how we have planned. Our reception was much better than yesterday, and made less mistake than our opponent."

Luciano PEDULLA
head coach of Romania

Jan DE BRANDT, head coach of Hungary:


"We don't have strong and tall attackers, so we have to win these games 'under the net'. Today we made too many direct mistakes with serve and reception. Romanian team has more experienced payers than us, in key moments this was decisive. We have 3 points from two games, now we have to beat Azerbaijan and/or Croatia. I know my team, they are able to do that."

"We were prepared that they will start strong, but in my opinion we didn't hava the rythm what we should. Maybe we didn't have enough time to prepare against Romania, so we will use our rest day on Sunday to prepare against Azerbaijan."
