COACH QUOTES

21.06.2012
Quotes Italy vs. Luxembourg

Italy head coach Roberto Ricchini:
"We knew that this game was not very difficult, but after the first defeat in Latvia it was important to win in order to prepare the team for the next game. We played with intensity and the right attitude, from the first minute. The game against Greece is very important: Greece is a team that does not have many internale players like us: it will be a very tactical game."

Italy player Lavinia Santucci:
"We started really well and we played all the game with the same intensity. We played good basketball. It was important for us to win, now we are ready to go to Greece. In Athens we would like to win, I expect a great game. They beat us 20 days ago but I am sure that this will be a different game."

Luxembourg player Tessy Hetting:
"It was a very hard game. We wanted to win, but we played against a very good team. We have also suffered from their physically. Italy is a team with talented players who play with great passion and intensity. These were their weapons."

Luxembourg head coach Hermann Paar:
"We knew it would be a difficult game. We are a young team with no international experience. We must grow and improve. Also Italy is a young team, but they are more used to play games like this."
