Nagoya, Japan, October 8, 2018 - Tijana Boskovic scored a match-high 17 points as Serbia remained unbeaten by defeating Germany 3-0 (25-14, 25-20, 25-20) at the FIVB Women's World Championship on Monday afternoon and the German coach was impressed by his opponent.
Serbia coach Zoran Terzic: It was important to play today's game because we have not had that many high-level games since the start of the tournament. They pushed us. The first two sets we played well but in the third set our concentration dropped a bit. We were able to come back and win.
Germany coach Felix Koslowski: They are on the peak now. They are playing more like men's volleyball now. I hope they can keep that level. The first two sets were difficult. They only had one unforced error. Even with a good serve we could not win. They pushed hard in the third set and wanted to win 3-0. We still need experience in that situation.
Serbia captain Maja Ognjenovic: We should be satisfied with the victory today. We prepared well. They fought hard. We were good in attack with (Tijana) Boskovic and (Brankica) Mihajlovic.
Germany captain Maren Fromm: Today it was obvious that we were missing the killer instinct.In the third set we were there until about 20-20 then they had another gear. This will help us grow and learn.
