Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic, June 23, 2017 – Argentina showed character during the first match at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship with such strong points that opponent Ukraine left the court in a confused state of mind after their 3-0 defeat.
Mykola Pasazhin, coach of Ukraine:
“We made a lot of mistakes in both defence and attack. The Argentinean team proved too strong for us.”
Alejandro Grossi, coach of Argentina
“We were very nervous. In the first set we realized it will not be an easy match. Then during the second set we knew we were getting stronger and gained our confidence.”
