Bouzidi: We needed to play with more power

 
Riffa, Bahrain, August 26, 2017 - Tunisia utilised more power in their brand of play to triumph against Chile, 3-1 (25-16, 21-25, 25-21, 25-11), on Saturday at the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boys’ U19 World Championship at Isa City Sports Hall.

Tunisia coach Chokri Bouzidi: We needed to play with more power so we could win this match. It was the first time for us to play against Chile, but against any team, we always want to do our best. Our game plan was simple, just field in the best and tallest players and make necessary adjustments as the match happens.

Tunisia captain Atif El Khadim: I am happy to win today. Chile is a good team, but today we played better than they did. We were in good spirits today as we knew what we needed to do to give our best in the match.

Chile coach Ivan Villareal
: This group could be better and play at a higher level. Tunisia played well with less mistakes than our team. This is the way our players need to work, to play with less mistakes.

Chile captain Joaquin Leon: We wanted to win to get a better ranking in this tournament, but maybe we were not strong enough or confident in terms of mentality. It was a must-win for our team to finish well in the tournament, and maybe we were so nervous about this.
