Press Conference
"Our aim is only to take part in the competition."

Turkey celebrate

Egypt coach Andres Martinez said: "The level of the other teams is very good and our team is very new. Our aim is only to take part in the competition. I have only been the head coach for five months, and that is not enough time to prepare for the World Championships."

Egypt captain Yosra Selim said: "Yesterday we watched Turkey's game against Cuba, and we were surprised how good they were. They put in a great performance, and we thought they could have won the match. It was very hard to win this game. We had a good start, but we couldn't collect the points and we started to get desperate."

Turkey coach Resat Yaziciogullari said: "Today our mindset was better than yesterday. I think we showed our power today, and we have to continue fighting. I hope to proceed into the second round."

Turkey number 16 Seda Tokatlioglu said: "It is out first time to participate at the World Championships. Yesterday we were very sorry about our match against Cuba, and we thought we could play better. I always come off the bench to help the team, but today I played a lot and scored a lot of points, so I am very happy."
