Brno, Czech Republic, June 24, 2017 – Poland’s coach and captain were both pleased to have won their second victory at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship, but expressed their concerns about the excessive unforced errors they committed in the match against the Czech Republic.
Sebastian Pawlik, coach of Poland: “I am satisfied that we won this game. We made too many mistakes in the first two sets and that is why our game was not so good. But it is important that we won, because now we can think about playing in the first eight.”
Jakub Kochanowski, captain of Poland: “We are happy that we won, but we have to improve some skills, especially not making unforced mistakes. We made too many of those. The rest of the game was good and I am glad that we won in straight sets.”
Ivan Pelikan, coach of Czech Republic: “The positive thing about today was that we started as we planned. The first two sets we were successful in the game situations, but produced more mistakes in the ending moments.”
Krisitan Cervinka, captain of Czech Republic: “We started very well and kept the same level as Poland. We lost the endings of the sets due to lack of aggressiveness. Yesterday we were not patient and today we were not courageous.”
