We played really well today. After yesterday’s loss, we came back to play some really good volleyball and we are really, really happy. Today my service was at a really good level and I am happy because in an important moment I could do something extra. This was important for me, but the most important thing was that we won. Now we have seven days off and then we start preparations for the World Championship and our next goals,” said Mateusz Bieniek, middle blocker of Poland after the game.
