We believe in ourselves - China captain Xu


Cairo, Egypt, August 18, 2017 - China's captain Zu Zhenshen was super positive about his team's capabilities going forward, though coach Ju Genyin was slightly more reserved after China beat Turkey 4-3 (19-17, 12-15, 11-15, 15-8, 15-10, 10-15, 15-10) on the opening day of the 2017 FIVB Men's U23 World Championship.

Here's the post match reaction from the two sides:

China coach, Ju Genyin: "This was our first match outside of China and just one month of training us is a short period. We will continue to fight to win every game one by one and see what the outcome is."

China captain, Xu Zhensen: "We believe in ourselves and we believe that we can win every game we play. First of all we want to qualify from this group and then we can see what we can do."

Turkey coach, Resat Arig: "We lost the first set and then couldn't properly control the game. We lost the match ourselves but we will fight hard and try to be better in our next match so as to advance to the next round."
