Happy Slovenes celebrate as they completely turn around their match against France at the 2021 VNL.

Slovenia staged a remarkable comeback from two sets down to turn the tables on France and knock them off the top of the 2021 FIVB Men's Volleyball Nations League standings.

Here's the reaction after the game, from the virtual Mixed Zone:

Thibault Rossard (France): "We started the match very well with good service, but then in the third set we lost a bit of focus and we lost some easy points letting them return to the game and they used this chance. They played very well after that until the end of the fifth set. The result of the fifth set was a combination of mentality and physical issues, we were missing energy after leading 2-0 - it was tough for us to see that Slovenia came back and level the set score to 2-2 and in the tie-break they put big pressure on us. They played really good, we had our chance in the third set to finish the set, but we didn't use it and they found their rhythm and won this game."

Alen Pajenk (Slovenia): "Winning the game after being 0-2 down feels amazing, especially that we played against each other in Germany [at European Olympic qualifiers], so it was a kind of revenge for us. I'm happy that we did. We started very badly on serve, so it was very hard to play, especially in the first two sets. But then Rok Mozic came in and he gave us some freshness. We started to score more points and to serve better. We had much more energy in the last three sets. We know that the match against Russia will be very hard. Tomorrow is a new day, a new challenge - big Russia, they also won today, so it's going to be a really hard match, but we will go motivated to this game like against everybody else and we will try to win."
