Riffa, Bahrain, August 20, 2017 - Iran powered through a 3-0 win against Mexico on Sunday, for the Norceca side’s second victory in Pool D of the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boy’s U19 World Championship at Isa City Sports Hall.

Iran captain Amirhossein Esfandiar: This is an important victory for us. If we played slow and if we relaxed, the result could have been different.
