Press Conference
 
Ahmed: This was a historical victory
 

Egypt

Head coach Zakaria Ahmed: Today was the best result in the Egypts history for volleyball. If we could have played like this from the beginning our end position would have been better. Im very happy today and we thank the organization and the Japanese and we will come back for the World League and play Japan.

Captain Hamdy Awad: Im happy to win this match. I think the last three matches we played well. Weve done well and today we kept our concentration.

Australia

Head coach Russell Borgeaud: I want to congratulate the Egyptians, they played well today. A couple of our guys were not so focused. This was a long tournament and very tough mentally and physically. If we want to progress we need to improve in the future.

Captain Benjamin Hardy: Congratulations for the Egyptian team. Certianly they wanted to win more than we did.
