At least we finished with a victory - Iran coach Cichello

 
Cairo, Egypt, August 25, 2017 - Iran wrapped up their 2017 FIVB Men's U23 World Championship obligations with a 4-1 win over China and a seventh-place finish here on Friday. Here's the reaction from the two sides at the completion of the tournament:

Iran coach, Juan Manuel Cichello: "I think we won a difficult match, because China played very well in the 4th and 5th sets. We lost the fourth set because the players lost confidence as they are young. At least we finished with a victory today and this is good."

Iran captain, Rahman Taghi: "This was a good match and I am very happy that at this tournament we were the winners of the 7th place. After two sets we felt we were already the winners so we relaxed and China took advantage of this to snatch the fourth set, but we were able to come back and win."

China coach, Ju Genyin: "Today's match was a good one and the players were very much in good shape and high spirits, though some did some mistakes such as losing four serves in a row, so we lost."

China captain, Xu Zhensen: "We did our best and we are satisfied with the result. It was a good experience and we have enjoyed the tournament."
