Press release

"We know everything about Rwanda and made a pressure with service," Says Tunisia's Chekir


Rwanda's Aimable Mutuyimana speaks in the mix zone after the match against Tunisia

Tunisia Coach Mohammed Mounir Gara:

"Yesterday we were stressed to play against Canada. However, today we were more relaxed. Players were concentrated on strong service so we put pressure on Rwanda. For Africa, it is good that Rwandan team is here to get more experience. This is a good training for the future."

Tunisia Player Malek Chekir:

 "We played against Rwanda in African Championship. We know their strengths and weaknesses. I believe we played well. Rwanda was playing %200 concentration against Canada and this was too much and put us under pressure, but today we were more relaxed and we put pressure over them to won the game. We will play against Serbia and Canada. We will try to do our best to win those two games.

Rwanda Coach Paul Bitok

 "For today's match I'm really disappointed. Tunisia won 3 straight sets with a wide score. After watching all the teams in our group, Tunisia was the only match we could have a chance to win than the others. However we have much respect to Tunisia. They played well and we put much pressure to ourselves. We wanted to win this match to have more chances to qualify for the next round. After 6 points difference team could not come back. From now on we will concentrate on the next matches which will be more difficult to us. We will improve our level and see if we can surprise Canada and Serbia."

Rwanda Captain Aimable Mutuyimana:

"Yesterday we play well against USA. Today we didn't do our best, the game was really bad. We made a lot of mistakes. Tunisia were the Africa Champions. They are really strong. I think we put a lot pressure on ourselves with the bad reception. We are still less experienced than the other teams. We will get better for the next matches.
