Qatar coach Massimiliano Giaccardi: We played against team who is very well organized and very strong in serve. We prepared some things and some time in all sets they worked but all in all Estonia was just too strong for us. Difference between the two teams was evident. But I am sure that if we can play on this kind of level we could challenge Greece and Venezuela. In conclusion playing in this kind of tournament is unusual for us and we enjoy every moment of it.
