Jesse Panek (coach of Team Germany): We played really bad as a team. We made plenty of mistakes in our defense. We were not very strong in the offense also. We played only with 9 players, because we have one injured player from yesterday. We would prefer to play France in the quarterfinals, Czechs are a better team, but we still wanted to win this game.

Jason Coles (coach of Team Great Britain): An excellent performance from our players. We played physically a very tough game but our players played extremely well.
