It was the only solution for our fans - Egypt coach Miranda

 
Cairo, Egypt, August 23, 2017 - Egypt's great win over Poland in five sets to stay alive in the 2017 FIVB Men's U23 World Championship owes a lot to the support of the fans, according to the post-game reaction.

Egypt coach, Marcos Miranda: "This was the match of my life. This win allowed us to survive in the tournament and led us to advance to the second round.

For the first time I had such a coach. Polish volleyball is a great school. I want thank our fans, who filled the stands and supported us through the matches."

Poland coach, Dariusz Daszkiewicz: "I congratulate the Egyptian team for their win. They played very well and the crowd made things very difficult for us."

Poland captain, Marcin Komenada: "Congratulations to Egypt. They played a very good game. This win was very important for Egypt and we tried to do our best, but Egypt was better than us."
