“It’s our fault,” said Antoine Brizard after the Bleus’ defeat to Poland

Antoine Brizard, passer -by and captain of the French team, after the defeat against Poland: “It’s our fault … We started very well, we had a lot of opportunities to take the lead in the 2nd set, but we didn’t do the counter-attacks that we needed and it took them away.” In the 3rd and 4th sets, they were super well received, it was hard to play when they won the reception service match. It’s a bit of a pity … But it would be a mistake to think that this Poland is less strong, when we know the quality of the Polish championship and their players. The three receiver-attackers who were there were at a very high level. We didn’t take them all lightly, and it’s not a shame to lose against this team. »

Andrea Giani, selector of the French team: “It started this match very well, but then we lost reception quality and our confidence in the side-out. But the balance of this stage (in Canada) is good, the guys played well, and I was able to turn it around effectively in every match. I had information about the team, mainly because I spent time with the players, I was able to talk to them about the team and not just the game systems. »
