Mahdi Sammoud, Captain of Tunisia: “Our objective was to make it to the next round and we are almost there. We are happy with this result against Egypt. In the second round we want to play as best as possible against a stronger opposition.”

Lotfi Ben Slimane, Coach of Tunisia: “It was a difficult day for us today. We had to come back after losing to Italy in five sets. In Jesolo we hope to play our best volleyball. I want also to congratulate Egypt because their team has been transformed since the last time I saw it.”

Omar Hassan, Captain of Egypt: “I am very sorry about losing our three matches in this round and very sad about losing the game against Egypt.”

Attia Hossam, Coach of Egypt: “I am not satisfied about losing three matches. We need to show more fighting spirit. The most important thing you ask to a player is to do his best and they didn’t do that. Our best match thus far was against Italy. It was not a great match but our best.”
