Head coach Tillikainen has stated that the goal of this tournament is to make it a place of experience for young players to grow. In response to the question of how much the goal was achieved through the 3 group stage matches, he said, “The goal of this tournament was fully incorporated into the 3 group stage matches.” I am satisfied with the results,” he smiled. He added, “I will prepare well for the rest of the game. I need a little more supplementation in the offensive part.”

Korean Air, who had reached the group stage of the quarterfinals with one loss, was under the burden of having to win against Santory. Coach Tillikainen said, “It’s a team we’ve faced a lot in the past, but there are players who are still defending the team and there are new players, so we need to analyze it.” I think it will be an opportunity,” he said.
