China Head Coach JuGenyin :

 “I am satisfied with how we played because we are very tired from yesterday’s match against Turkey. The Iranians were seating and watching us during the match so they studied us very well and the way we were playing. My players were verytensed from the beginning and that is why they lost. They only regained their shape by the fourth set and that is why we were sometimes leading over Iran.”

“We did not play well as we were tired of yesterday’s match. We will concentrate more tomorrow and I hope we will win.”
