Press Conference TUN vs BEL
 

TUNISIA

Captain Elyes Karamosly: "We had a very strong match last night against Mexico in five sets and had to play the first match today. We were very tired and the match was very difficult."

Head Coach Ben Romdhane Hichem: "It was a very difficult match as our Captain said but I have to add that team Belgium served and blocked very well. But we were too tired from last night and the long trip arriving yesterday."

BELGIUM

Captain Bram Van de Dries: "Our purpose was to win this match and we prepared for it. Our purpose was to serve good and to keep the ball away from the net and then play good defence and to have good blocking."

Head Coach Emile Rousseaux: "To be honest, I was a little afraid of playing Tunisia because they have three or four very good players, but the circumstances made it hard for them. About qualifying to the next round, I only have to say that is a great honour to play among the top eight teams in the world. Today we served and blocked very good and prepared against Tunisia by what we saw last night. We had no data about their team, neither of Mexico and India. I want to congratulate Tunisia because I know they are better than the way they played today."
