The Chinese Taipei team celebrate
Head coach Sadatoshi Sugawara: I think Chinese Taipei’s volleyball is the basis of volleyball, which is about not making mistakes and playing in patterns. This is a very good team, whose members have played together for about 10 years.
Captain Dorcas Ndasaba: The Taipei team played at their best today. We tried to block and play back-court defence, but it did not work very well.
Head coach Lin Kuang Hung: My impression of the Kenya team is of a tall team and the players have high potential, with very bright characteristics. Those players are led by a good Japanese head coach, so I thought today’s match would be a hard game. Kenya played their best in the third set and we felt some pressure, so I think Kenya can be optimistic about the future.
Captain Chen Shu Li: I am very happy to win two games in a row. Every game is a challenge for us, and Kenya was a very good team. Our hard training has enabled us to win today, and this game was valuable experience for us.
