France coach Tillie: "We won but it was difficult to find a rhythm"


Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic, June 20, 2015 - France continue their winning streak with another victory over Czech Republic 3-1 (25-17, 23-25, 25-22, 25-14) in front of 5000 fans in Budvar Arena.

Czech Republic coach Zdeněk Šmejkal: We started to play badly in the middle of the third set. They pushed on us when we had few points in a row. It was the key moment for our next performance.

Czech Republic captain Aleš Holubec: We played leveled three sets, but at the end of the third set we finished badly and we can not do this against teams like France. They have huge power, they change two players and their play is totally different. But we can not criticise ourselves and I hope that we will win last four matches.

France coach Laurent Tillie: Czech Republic played better today, but we started with different players, so it was difficult to find a rhythm. But it was good game and victory 3-1 like this is good for us.

France captain Benjamin Toniutti: We tried to change some players, so it was different match. It was difficult for them, but this win is important for us, because we are qualified to the Final Four. We try to win all remaining matches.
