Egypt head coach: "Size does matter. If we were tall like the Dominican, I believe we could beat them."

Dominican Republic head coach Enrique Larrazaleta: “Egypt played well although they are much smaller than us. We blocked well against their spiking. Actually, I’ve thought it before that the match will end in three sets. We played very comfortably. The first set was competitive because Egypt tried to come back, but we ended their challenge. Now, we eye the ninth place in the championship.”

Captain Yeniffer Cristina Ramirez Espinal: “We fought hard against Egypt. We just want to improve our level and play our form in matches.”

Egypt head coach Badrawy Hesham: “We played well only in the third set. We played too many matches and became very tired. That’s why we always started well, but dropped our form later on. If we were tall like the Dominicans, I think we stood a good chance to beat them.”

Captain Walaa Amer: “We have a chance to rest tomorrow. We will go for sight-seeing and shopping. We will come back for training in the afternoon.”
