Imre Szittya, Germany coach:
„Tonight we played like we always wanted to. We had a great first half defensively holding the Ukraine down to 26 points. That was the key for the victory. Katharina Kühn was a big help for us."
Dorothea Richter, Germany player:
„We finally made it! This was a ‚total‘ win by the team as we played and fought together. Hopefully this will give us a lift for the important game in Cardiff on Wednesday."
Volodymyr Bryukhovetsky, Ukraine coach:
„Today, Germany fought and we simply played. That was the main difference. The last quarter which we won shows that it was not a conditional problem for us tonight but rather a mental one."
