Shareika Aleh (Belarus,head coach) We won the game. We were slightly stronger than the Greece. We had better defence and attack, and our goalkeeper played well. In many moments we were stronger.
Arvannitis Ioannis (Greece, head coach) I cannot say that we played a good game, they had good defence, it’s something that we haven’t solved. Somehow we weren’t in the correct mood for the game. We started well, our game was acceptable, then slowly we went out of the game. They pushed us a lot. Belarus has a good team, it’s probably one of the best teams of the tournament, well ,for us it was a good game, because it was our first national competition. We look forward to playing in the finals.
