Canadians happy with win, not with performance


Coach Brousseau gives an interview after the match

Brno, Czech Republic, June 24, 2017 – Both the coach and the captain of Canada agreed that their team’s performance against Morocco at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship was not satisfactory despite the straight-set win.

Gino Brousseau, coach of Canada: “I am satisfied because we won again and now we are in a good position. On the other side, I am not satisfied, because our players did not respect the game plan and that is why the match was much harder than we thought.”

Matthew Mawdsley, captain of Canada: “We won in three sets and that was our goal, but our performance was sloppy today.”

Mohammed Abdellaoui Maan, coach of Morocco: "I am really happy to see progress in my players’ performance at the tournament. They enjoyed the game on the court. Today we had tactical problems, not technical like yesterday. Our troubles are also the endings of the sets. And this is also a problem of youth and inexperience, not a problem of the game. I hope to see my players play very well tomorrow.”

Karim Lamri, captain of Morocco: “Today we played better than yesterday and we are really happy about this. We will take it step by step and we will see...”
