Russia W18 defender Alina Orlova:
- We took a lot of penalties because of our mistakes, which resulted in us losing. It was too late to save the match in the third period. We were all full of emotions, everyone tried to score but it didn't go our way. There wasn't a real team game. We move on with our heads held high, you can win without losing sometimes.
Russia W18 forward Ilona Markova:
- This defeat is down to us. For all of us, this was the most important match of our lives. We wanted to do everything to score that goal to win. Now, I'm thinking about the fact that we can't turn back time. It feels like a dream, that this defeat actually didn't happen. I believed until the end that we would score. There are a lot of reasons behind this defeat.
