Tatiana Kosheleva against three Korean blockers in the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup at the Sendai Gymnasium on Sunday
Sendai, Japan, August 30, 2015 - Russia prevailed in the late surges of Korea in the match to get a 3-0 win and stay unbeaten in the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup at the Sendai Gymnasium on Sunday.
Russia coach Yury Marichev: "We had to work hard to win each set. Korea is a tough opponent. I'm glad we could win in three sets. The Korean players made us fight for each point. No. 7 (Lee Jae-Yeong) was good. She is very skilful and made things difficult for us a times."
Russia captain Ekaterina Kosianenko: "We practiced hard this morning and then won the match today. Korea are strong on serve and serve-reception. Our defence was good and this was a good match."
Korea coach Lee Jung-Chul: "It is our first game in Sendai. We did well in some parts but not so well in others, like when we led for a while in the second set. It was a tough game for (Kim) Yeon-Koung.
Korea captain Kim Yeon-Koung: "It was a tough match for us. We had prepared well for it. We will get ready for tomorrow's match against Japan."
Korea player Lee Jae-Yeong: "It was a tough match. We did our best. It's a pity that we lost."
