Krzysztof KOZIOROWICZ, Poland Head Coach
"The only way to win was to fight on defense but we didn't succeed. We have to fight and play faster; it's our only chance to beat a team like this. The games against Hungary showed that we can play good. In qualification last year we played really good against teams like Turkey and Italy but we don't have the Final Round experience. We need more young players, we have two more years to practice and to show that in the next EuroBasket Women in Poland we can do more than we achieved here."
Milan VEVERKA, Czech Republic Head Coach
"After the game against Greece when we played very bad in the last quarter, we played much better today. When we play good defense, it's easier for us to do a good job on offense. Regarding the 2010 World Championship we hope to gather all our experienced players."
