Vakifbank’s Win Over Bangkok Glass Sets Up Duel With Rival Eczacibasi VitrA

“It will be an amazing game tomorrow because Eczacibasi is a very phenomenal team,” said VakifBank coach Giovanni Guidetti referring to their rival squad powered by the star-studded crew of Jordan Larson-Burbach, Tijana Boskovic, Thaisa Daher Pallesi and Tatiana Kosheleva. “But I think VakifBank is a very strong team. We are playing at a very high level right now. It’s all about the details.”

Kosheleva credited their victory to teamwork and unity despite serving as a collection of the world’s best volleyball stars. “We won because we played together,” said Kosheleva, a mainstay in the Russian national team. “As we play together, I think step by step, everyday we’ll get better and better. Rexona had good blockers and good defense. But we played more as a team.”

“Overall, it was a good win on our first match,” said Rexona-Sesc Rio coach Bernardo Rezende, the genius who guided the Brazilian men’s team to the gold medal of the Rio Olympics. “We are a very experienced team. Some players played in the Olympics, some in this tournament and that worked to our advantage. We were very, very focused on winning. The Philippines is a good team but they are not yet used to compete at a higher level.”
