Captain Marouf says Iran must forget wins against USA

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian national volleyball team’s captain Saeid Marouf said they must forget two wins against USA in the 2015 FIVB World League.

Iran handed reigning world champion USA two straight losses in Tehran.

“I believe in my team and our two wins proved it. As I predicted, this match was more difficult than the previous one,” Marouf said in the post-match news conference.

“Thanks to our substitute players that were really good. Iran was so good at both home matches.”

“I hope this will last in the same way. We must forget these two wins as we did forget the losses before. We must try more now,” he added.

Iran will host Poland on Friday and Sunday in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.
