Head coach
DOM players played very well in the 1 and 2 sets, while my players had unnecessary mistakes.
But in the 3rd set, our substituted player no. 3 Tayyiba gave arise desirable change in my team.
Better attacks gave an golden oportunity to win the matchm.

JPN team has stable receving, passing skills and experience.
We will try to figure out how to attack JPN's

Head Coach
It is disapponting especially because we got the 1 and 2 sets, getting many points.
But from the 3rd set my players were beginning to make errors and lost concentration.
That's our critical point of my team.

Not to lose our concentration is only thing we should do in the future.
