Bulgaria celebrate first victory in 2019 VNL


Perugia, Italy, June 13, 2019 - Bulgaria fought back from a set down to claim their first victory in the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League on Thursday 3-1 (20-25, 25-23, 25-19, 26-24) against Korea after more than two hours of play.

Miroslava Paskova, Bulgaria: "For us it is good to play games like this in the VNL, it is another level of volleyball, we are young, need to manage our strength and fight till the end, frequently we lost our calm in the final part of the sets and we are working on that."

Stefano Lavarini, Korea: "Today we had a game when we could be more competitive, anyway I’m more satisfied for the match of today than the other matches, for example, the one against Russia, comparing the two matches, in this, we had to fight till the end without surrendering. We still have to learn that our attitude should be aggressive, otherwise the physical strength of the opponents can put us in a difficult position."
