Press Conference
 
Argentina played tough even they were already qualified
 

IRAN

Captain Ashkan Derakhshan: "Argentina is a very good team and they placed strong even tough they were already qualified to the semi finals. I am happy to go to the semis but upset because we lost tonight. But congratulations to Argentina. Now we will meet France which is the European champion and we have to fight hard against them to advance to the final match."

Head Coach Cvetkovic Jovica: "Congratulations to Argentina. They have a team with strong mentality and I like to see that quality on a team. I would like to play in the final against Argentina. Today we only had one target and it was going to the semi finals. To qualify was enough for us."

ARGENTINA

Captain Rodrigo Aschemacher: "We controlled the first set and then we relaxed a little bit and went out of our game plan. But the good thing is that we recovered on time and played better in the fourth and fifth sets. We are very happy with the victory."

Head Coach Juan Cichello: "First of all we had to beat two continental champions like Brazil and Iran to finish unbeaten in our pool. Now we’ll face China which was the only team to beat us in the preliminary round. But we must defeat them now in order to advance to the final match."
