Aleh shareika(Belarus, head coach):The Championship is still going, we’re preparing for it. I can’t say that I’m satisfied before the finals. I’ll be able to say it when the Championship ends. We made lots of mistakes, we couldn’t score one on one goals’, but the boys still fought.
Giuseppe Tedesco (Italy, head coach): I’m very happy and very satisfied in this tournament, group stage was fantastic for us and now the problem is semi finals and finals, because we want to win this tournament and it’s not that easy. I want to thank all of my defence because they were very fantastic throughout this tournament and would thank my player Max Prantner in particular, because he had never played with our team before, he was a fantastic player of beach handball, his a very strong and important player for us. I would rate today’s game with an 8.
Max Prantner (Italy, MOTM): Like I said two days ago we are a team and again, today most of our players scored, it’s our strongest weapon. We are very happy that we are in semi finals, we will do our best to reach the finals too. Maybe our team should keep calm and do our maximum. I would rate my teams game with a 7.
Belarus 22-27 Italy
