Raul Lozano satisfied with Iran’s performance against Argentina

“We had a great game with a good performance on the side-out. We almost did not commit any mistakes in the tiebreak but there is still room for improvements,” the Argentine added.

Iran also suffered two defeats against Brazil and USA.

The team has been scheduled to face Bulgaria on Thursday.

Iran will also play Brazil and Serbia respectively in Belgrade.

The 27th edition of the FIVB World League features a record 36 teams and 54 matches around the world.
