Iran complicated things for Spain

Salafzoon the Iranian Captain

Carlos Baos, Captain of Spain: “It was a difficult match and I personally think Iran played really well. They have in particular a really good reception. I believe we won the third set in particular thanks to our serving which was really good. Unfortunately we were not able to play our best cards during the entire match”.

Farhad Salafzoon, Captain of Iran: “The Spanish team played really well. Their serving and their reception was really good and I would like to give my congratulations to them. Iran manage to play well today”.

Ricardo Maldonado, Coach of Spain: “First of all I would like to give my congratulations to the Iranian team. We had many difficulties and if they won it is definitely because they played really well. I think my team was unrecognizable as we did not manage to be in the perfect mental shape and this led us to make many mistakes”.

Jovica Cvetkovic, Coach of Iran: “Congratulations to the Spanish team and to the coach which showed the skills of his team. Spain is probably not the team with the best individual players but showed that a team can replace some individual lacks playing together. The Spanish team really has a great connection between the setter and the other players and that is fundamental. Today it was possible to realize that we always have to play 100% as when we loose concentration we made more mistakes as in the third set. I would like to remark that both teams played a high-level match, we did better at some points of the competition therefore we managed to win”.
