“We are happy to finish with a win,” Panchenko said. “Our opponents have good technique and move in a very organised way.”
“We are happy with the result,” Vetrova said. “We were able to end the tournament on a positive note. Fifth place is different from our original goal, but we are pleased with this win.”

, who contributed well on offence for Dinamo Moscow, commended the efforts of their rivals.
“Brazilian teams are strong,” De La Cruz said. “They have players that fight until the end. It was nice to finish with a win despite finishing in fifth.”
“We played great games here,” De Moura said. “We saw strong defence against the Asian teams and played with strong players against the European teams. This was a precious experience for us. We have learned many valuable lessons here.”
“This was a good experience, we will learn a lot from this,” Tandara said. “We just could not show enough mental strength in this match.”
“We regret that we could not make the final here,” Gabriela said. “We promised to give our best in this match, but they played at a higher level.”
