Eddy Casteels, head coach of Belgium:
"My players were fighting tonight like lions; it paid off and led us to victory. This win makes us really happy."
Ales Pipan, head-coach of Poland:
"It was our worst game this summer and it is not easy to explain [how it happened]. Every beginning is difficult, and this game proves that point. But I cannot answer why we lost. We really wanted to win. Maybe after tomorrow's game analysis I will be a bit wiser."
Marcin Gortat, Poland:
"If anyone said that we are favourites in this group, I say that we are not. At least I don't feel [like it]. If you have an opportunity to represent your homeland, you have to leave your heart on the court and show your dedication. Today we didn't do it. It is hard to blame the coach for the fact that players were unable to score. In the next games we have to play with more nerve."
Guy Muya, Belgium:
"We're really happy, because we won an important game on the road. We played well defensively, which allowed us to win our opening game of this Qualification Round. Now we need to focus on our next opponents, because we're aware this was only the beginning."
