TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Captain of Iran volleyball team Saeid Marouf says that they took advantage of their chances against Argentina in the tiebreak and won the match.
Iran earned a hard-fought 3-2 (25-22, 25-20, 21-25, 13-25 and 15-11) victory over Argentina in the FIVB World League on Sunday.
“We played well against Argentina. The third and the fourth sets were tougher and the Argentina showed a strong block and defense. We took all the opportunities we had in the tiebreak to win the match,” Marouf said.
Argentina player Bruno Lima said that the match against Iran was tough.
“We had the opportunity to win. I have a bittersweet feeling as we could have won, but also we improved our game from the other two previous matches,” Lima said.
