Raul Lozano Happy with Win over Australia
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian national volleyball team's coach Raul Lozano is satisfied with a win over Australia in the Men’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament.
Iran beat Australia 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-18) at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium on Saturday.
“I am happy for this result. We did a good job in attack and of controlling our errors. It's good to win the first match,” Lozano said.
“This was a special match because we know each other well. We lost to them last year. Since I took over in April I have been working with the team on improving efficiency and reducing errors. I have analyzed the team carefully,” the Argentine added.
Iran is scheduled to face Canada on Sunday.
Eight strong teams are competing for the Men’s Olympic Qualification Tournament from May 28 to June 5 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.
The qualification tournament in Tokyo, which also serves as the Asian qualification tournament, will provide the top ranked Asian team and the top three ranked teams with the four Rio 2016 Olympic Games qualification slots available.
