Hande BALADIN, outside spiker of Turkey:


"First of all, I would like to thank our fans. They put incredible pressure on the Netherlands. We played a good game. I'm really happy. We have performed incredible as a team. Of course there was no compensation for this match. We were aware of this. We are very happy that we will play a semi-final at home. We are waiting for the support of our fans again in semifinals. I've been trying to do my best since the beginning of the tournament, but I'm very happy to be able to contribute to the team in such an important match. Our next opponent will be the winner of Germany - Poland. It doesn't matter to us. We all know what it means to play the EuroVolley semi-final match at home. We will try our best to reach the finals."

"It was disappointing game for us. The crowd here was amazing. They had an extra player on the floor. We could have played better. We missed so many services in the first two sets. And we could not get into the match. This tournament was longer than it used to be. And it was good for us in general but we had a tough opponent in the quarter finals."

Jamie MORRISON
head coach of the Netherlands
