Mendez satisfied with improvements of Sada Cruzeiro
Betim, Brazil, October 16, 2013 – The service game os Sada Cruzeiro still needs a fine-tuning before they are ready to play against the big opponents but coach Marcelo Mendez is satisfied with the improvements thus far.
William Arjona, captain of Sada Cruzeiro: It was a good game for us and the tea mis growing up. It was a good game for the whole team. It is a short competition and you have to think about improving and that’s what is happening.
Samir Sellam, captain of Sportif Sfaxien: We played against one strong team and one of the favorites to win the tournament. We were not able to practice together because some of our players competed at the U23 Championship. I hope this match against a strong team prepares us for the next match.
Marcelo Mendez, coach of Sada Cruzeiro: I am very happy with the qualification to the semifinal round. The team is improving and today we worked quite well in the attacks and the services improved but we still need to do better against the stronger teams like the Russian and the Italian sides.
Mohamed Ben Mustapha, coach of Sportif Sfaxien: Since we won the African tournament in May we have not been able to practice together neither have friendly matches. That’s the reason the team looked bad today. Our next game is nit against such strong team and I hope we can win against the team from Dominican Republic.
