Igor Kolakovic Waits for Match against Argentina
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran national volleyball team head coach Igor Kolakovic said he is happy with the win over Tunisia and waits for the Argentina match.
Iran eased past Tunisia in straight sets (26-24, 25-17, 25-22) in the second phase of round-robin play of the FIVB World Cup on Thursday.
Team Melli will meet Argentina on Friday.
"The first set was tough. We did not have the ability to defend No. 10 (Nagga Hamza). After winning that set we played with more confidence. We were able to control with our blocks and tactical serves. We feel good now and wait for the next game," Kolakovic said.
Iran player Porya Yali is also happy after he was handed an opportunity to play against Tunisia.
"I’m so happy to have the opportunity to play against Tunisia. After the loss to the USA we are happy to win this match. I’m happy the coach has trust in me. I’m happy to play in the World Cup and hope for more victories," Yali said.
