    Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, June 7, 2018 - Ai Kurogo sparked Japan’s epic comeback to beat Thailand in front of their home crowd 3-2 (19-25, 20-25, 25-17, 25-19, 22-20) at the inaugural women's FIVB Volleyball Nations League on Thursday night.

    Japan captain Nana Iwasaka said: “It was a big audience today. It was a very tough match, but we didn’t give up until the end and that gave us a lot of confidence. We’re all glad that we won here. We have a lot of Thai fans as well who supported us and helped us win today. We want to keep this energy flowing and take this to Poland to finish our last week.”

    Japan coach Kumi Nakada said: “Today, both teams played really well. I think we brought out each others' good side. It was a really close match that could’ve gone either way. We still have a lot of room for improvement and we’re going to prepare for our next week in Poland. We will try to stick together, keep playing together, and just look for a better result.”

    Thailand setter Pornpun Guedpard said: “It was a really good match. We played very well in the first two sets and everyone fought really hard. We have to accept that Japan are also such a strong team. Credits to them for coming back to beat us. This match was really a close game and both teams could have won the match. We had many good rallies. This is true volleyball.”

    Thailand coach Danai Sriwacharamaytakul: “First of all, congratulations to Japan for the comeback win. I think we did our best in this match. Thank you to the Thai fans who cheered for us. This game depended on rhythm. In the third and fourth sets, Japan served very very well, so we couldn’t play our own game. They also played aggressive counter-attacks. In the fifth set, it was such an exciting and entertaining game for the audiences, but we committed more mistakes in the crucial points. That’s why we lost.”
