Cristian Rela (Team Italy coach): We played a really good game but we are still dissapointed of quarter-finals defeat from Team USA. In spite of that we are 5th in the world now, I think, that we can be better. You also have seen that we played an equal game with Americans and we defeat Team Canada.
Richard Ropchan (Team Canada coach): We couldn´t score today and that is the key point of our defeat. Our goalie showed some good saves. We are still dissapointed that we don´t play from highest possitions. This game was played without emotions. We have to change the team, bring new players and get ready for next championship.
