Omar Hassan, Captain of Egypt: “First of all, I would like to congratulate my Algerian friends. Today we won because we played better, focusing on reception and service. We also played as a real team, we did an actual team-work. Of course, now we must focus on the next matches."
Attia Hossam, Coach of Egypt: “I also want to congratulate my friend, the Algerian coach, for the great improvement of his team. I hope that they will gather more and more experience."
Oualid Zouai, Captain of Algeria: “Of course, this match was different from other matches, as it was a derby against our friends. The Egyptian players played a good match. On the contrary, we didn't play at all. We did a lot of mistakes, especially on the service."
Abdelhakim Djehiche, Coach of Algeria: “This is a heavy defeat. It's true that players were worried of facing this derby. Moreover, they are tired because of the intense competition pace and the Ramadan fasting, as the results of the matches clearly showed."
