Coach Jenny Lang Ping: It was a really important game for us and we needed to play together as a team to win. Every game against a top team is a challenge for us, and I told my players not to think about the result and don't be afraid to make a mistake; just give all your effort into playing well. I can see we have been getting better through several matches.
Captain Jordan Larson: We knew it was going to be a difficult match. Obviously we respect China very much. They played very well today. I think we also competed very hard today and I am really proud of our team for fighting through some tough moments. We want to come back stronger tomorrow.
Coach Karch Kiraly: I want to congratulate China for playing a very strong volleyball match today. They were stronger than we were in lots of phases. Our team is looking forward to a chance to get back on the court tomorrow against a very good Italy team in the next match in this group.
