THE WORDS OF THE TECHNICIAN DAVIDE MAZZANTI –
«The girls are fine. The fundamental thing is to recover as much energy as possible because tomorrow we have to face an important match. With the refinement we will get back the feeling with the ball and the pitch so that we will be ready for tomorrow’s match against Serbia. We will face an opponent with several new features, starting with the coach, without forgetting the many young athletes who are now part of a roster that is still very talented. The Pool of Brasilia is very important in a Final key, the results of this round will be decisive and for this we will have to be good at picking up the pace immediately, taking into account that some girls have not played for a while and therefore must be put in the best conditions to express themselves. So it will be essential to have patience but at the same time we will have to assert our quality ».
THE WORDS OF CRISTINA CHIRICHELLA –
” We can’t wait to get back on the pitch to be able to improve and find the right feeling that will allow us to find our final set-up both from a physical and technical-tactical point of view. At the same time we are animated by a lot of desire and determination because it is important for us to achieve a result to achieve the goal of qualifying for the Final. Surely, therefore, we will approach with the right malice to win and move our ranking. In these first hours in Brazil we have worked to get back into the rhythm, weighing weights and tasting the playing field with confidence that slowly, day after day, our condition will be better and better ».
