Brazil end week 4 with win against Serbia


Tokyo, Japan, June 13, 2019 - Brazil defeated Serbia in three sets on Thursday on the final day of action in 2019 women's FIVB Volleyball Nations League week 4.

Brazil coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: "I’m very happy for today’s victory. However, our team made a few unnecessary mistakes during the first and second sets, especially in the transition phase. We had a problem blocking Serbia's attacks. It's one of the things we need to improve for the next games. Thanks for the hospitality and all the organization, and a special thanks to the Japanese volleyball fans who supported us so warmly."

Brazil captain Natalia Pereira: "Today was a very important victory for our team. Serbia are a very young team, but they played very high level volleyball. I was so happy to get the victory from them."

Serbia coach Branko Kovacevic: "Today was not such a good game for both Serbia and Brazil. Brazil fought against us with not only experience, but also quality especially in their block, defence and combinations. Young players like Maya got some more experience from this game."

Serbia captain Katarina Lazovic: "Brazil are a great team, however we devoted everything to this game. I am proud of my girls. We will go to China for the next round and wish Brazil and us all the best."
