Men, Gold-Medal Match: Serbia v Spain 12-10
David Martín, head coach, Spain:
"It was a big game against Serbia. They are one of the best teams in the world. We had the opportunity to win in the last minute, but we didn´t have the extra man to do so. Afterwards we had to deal with the lottery of the penalty shootouts and unfortunatley we lost. We are very proud of our players and we will try harder next time. I would also like to congratulate Serbia for their victory today."
Felipe Perrone, player, Spain:
"We have to be happy with our performance because before the tournament nobody believed in us and we have managed to make it all the way to the final to play against a great team like Serbia, so we are very proud. It has been a great competition and it was very special for the whole team as we were deeply motivated by our fans support from the stands in every match.
Dani López Pinedo, goalkeeper, Spain:
"It's a shame because we gave everything in the pool, but we have no regrets. To make it to penalties against a great team like Serbia means that we played a great match. The fans were fantastic as they kept us going and I believe that it has to continue the same way so that we can be succesful in many competitions. Personally, I have a bitter sweet feeling. I thought that I would be able to stop at least one of the penalties, but they shot them very well. We have performed very well in this comeptition and we have to continue along the same lines."
Filip Filipovic, MVP of the competition, Serbia:
“It was an unbelievably hard and tough match. I need to say congratulations to Spain. They played really really well. It was a great waterpolo battle and there was fairplay as well even though it was such an important match. We were one goal, two goals behind, it was super difficult to come back, but we believed from the first minute to the last that we could do it. I am really proud to be a part of this team. This is amazing, four gold medals in a row at European Championships. We are very happy!”
