Germany v Georgia 11-9 – Day 4 – Men, Group C
Patrick Weissinger, head coach, Germany
That was a very tough job today. We knew that it would be hard but we did not expect that it would be so tough. Same as against Italy on Monday we were not awake enough at the beginning. After that we needed a lot of patience. But now we look forward. The match against Romania on Friday is our most important game here.
Jovan Popovic, head coach, Georgia
Germany won but we showed that we could play very well. The fourth period was not as successful as the first three. Compliments to the German team for their Fair Play. Our next game is against Italy and we will start with the preparations immediately.
Julian Real, captain, Germany
We really had a bad start. Whether this was due to the early time or not, I dont know at the moment. In the end only the victory counts. And that was very important today. With a win over Romania on Friday we have it in our hands to finish second-placed in our preliminary group.
Zurab Rurua, captain, Georgia
This was a very hard game for us because the Germans are a good team and physically well prepared. But we tried our best today. We played well three quarters, but in the fourth quarter we made some small mistakes
