We Have A New Generation of Players, France Captain Toniutti Says
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - France captain Benjamin Toniutti says that a new generation of young players can strengthen their volleyball in the future.
On the last day of the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Grand Champions Cup, France lost to Iran 3-2 (38-36, 25-23, 22-25, 25-27, 15-11).
“It’s a great shame about today but it was a superb match. France played great today and we were able to show we are a great team. We really showed our tenacity until the end. There were sets we could have won but couldn’t, so that’s why we lost,” Toniutti said.
“We have a new generation of players and we did well in the World League but not so well in the European Championship. But our younger players really played well and we will keep going and keep practicing so we can develop,” he added.
