Jaakko Horelli (Finland, head coach): Our players are not sick anymore, they’re healthy, they have energy, so the game was good. After the first 10 minutes we played shaky and then we had a really good energy level, we were fighting through the game and playing with our strength. I think we should work on calmness a little bit, more structure in the attacks, otherwise I’m pretty satisfied with the team. It was not easy for us to win the game, boys put everything on the field. I would rate todays’ game with an 8.
Finland 30-22 Greece
