Match Report

Slovakia celebrates the first game as a host with a success

Article 23 August 2019

First ever championship on home soil for Slovakia has brought dramatic volleyball in a noisy atmosphere (more than 4.000 spectators). Slovakia, playing fourth EuroVolley tournament overall, never advanced to the next round. Home team began well in Ondrej Nepela Arena, taking the first set from a resilient opponent.

Cheering fans helped to raise the fighting spirit of Marco Fenoglio´s team also in the second set. Slovakia was down for a long time (3-7, 8-13), but they turned again in the end. They needed five set-balls to seal it.

Also in the third sets looks like there will be drama until the last ball (10-10), but the home team overcome in the upcoming minutes.

Day 1 Recap

Play

Marco Fenoglio, Slovakia coach: “I am proud of my girls. We prepare from May to this game. I know, maybe sometimes you feel pressure, when you play at home. But we did it and we played strong in the end, like a team. I like we continue to push the opponent.”

Barbora Kosekova, Slovakia captain: “I am satisfied how many fans came to see us. And we won, which is fantastic.”

Maria José Corral Bouza, Spain setter: “My feelings are the same as we finished the game. We knew we could do it, we were leading in the first and in the second set until 20 point, but Slovakia was growing up and we were blocked. I don’t know why. Maybe we were nervous. And we did not know how to deal with this situation.”

Jaroslava Pencova, Slovakia middle-blocker: “I surprised also myself how I played today. I am glad coach trust in me. I enjoyed the game so much, especially after problems I had before the tournament.”
