Poland get the victory despite 30 errors

The high blocking of Poland was one of the keys to the victory over Tunisia

Tijuana, Mexico, June 27, 2013 – Poland’s coach Weislaw Czaja was happy to see his team scoring their first victory with a 3-0 win over Tunisia but expects better matches from his players in the upcoming matches.

Weislaw Czaja, coach of Poland: “We are glad with the win but we made too many errors today as it was the first match for the team. We will improve with the competition. Tunisia played good but we closed the sets.”

“Winning the first match is always important and I am happy because we won. I am sure that tomorrow we will improve our level.”

Wael Mrika, captain of Tunisia:
