Quotes Turkey vs. France

28.06.2013

Turkey Player Birsel Vardarli:
"We started the game really bad, in fact we lost the game by eight points and at the end of the first quarter we were losing by 11. We could not play a better defence, and we could not play as well as two years ago."

Turkey Head Coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu:
"Congratulations to France on their win. As Vararli said we did not start very well, and that affected  our defensive plan, we had to change it. Anyway we did not fall apart and trailing by eight by half-time was good enough to stay in the game. Our problem were the critical attacks at the end of the game, we made too much mistakes. I am very proud of my players, they showed a great effort."

France Player Sandrine Gruda:
"It was a great game for us, we learned from yesterday's game and we came out more agressive, doing what the coach said. The stronger mentality made the difference today."

France Head Coach Pierre Vincent:
"I am very happy, we won against a really good team. We were playing very well our pick and roll, we could control their inside game, and we played an almost perfect defence in the first quarter. Now we are in the final and we want to win; we have to give our maximum and be patient, strong and play together."
