Iran captain, Rahman Taghi: "The encounter was very good for us. Algeria wanted to win the match but we mamanged to stop them and recover to win four sets. We must fight to win the two remaining matches to reach the top four."

Algeria coach, Salim Bouhalla: "Our performance in the first set was very good, but after that the players committed some mistakes especially in the block, while at the same time Iran played very fast. Our preparation for this tournament was just one month, but we will try to win the next matches. We prepare this team for the future of Algerian volleyball."

Algeria captain, Abderaouf Hamimes: "We entered the match with a strong performance and we managed to win the first set, but then we lost our concentration and that led Iran to win the other four sets."
