Nikola Grbic glad about Serbia's act in match against Bulgaria


One of the top scorers of the match, Uros Kovacevic spikes as his team defeated Bulgaria in straight sets

Kaliningrad, Russia, June 18, 2016 - In order to defeat Bulgaria, Serbia's coach Nikola Grbic asked his players to repeat the performance shown on Friday against Russia. The plan paid off with a straight set win and leader position in the pool.

Nikola Grbic, coach of Serbia: I liked the way my team acted today. I asked my players yesterday evening to repeat everything they did in the game against Russia. Every team after a bad performance try to redeem and play much better, and Bulgaria is not an exclusion. So I've tried to prepare my team psychologically and I was glad to see that we tried to win every rally tonight. Now everything we need is to think about the game with Poland.

Alexandar Atanasijevic, opposite of Serbia: That was a great match. We managed to show our best performance as we managed to do that yesterday. We are already in a good physical shape, but still have a lot of problems to solve. I'm sure we could do that before the start of the Final Six in Poland.

Viktor Yosifov, captain of Bulgaria: We played better then yesterday. The first two sets were good. After the first set there was a difficult situation and we could not cope with it.
