Riffa, Bahrain, August 25, 2017 - Mexico slowly worked their way through the challenge of old-time opponents to win in the tie-break against Chile (19-25, 25-21,17-25, 25-22, 15-7) on Friday at the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boys' U19 World Championship at Isa City Sports Hall.
Mexico coach Gabriela Isela:
We are familiar with Chile’s style for quite some time now. We have played against them many times, and for sure, they are a strong team. But today, we had the will to win, and we fought all the way to the end. Mexico player Diego Gonzalez:
I know that we can win but after some challenges, we have to find solutions because we want to win. At times, this means you have to be a leader on the court and help the captain guide the team. Quick links - Volleyball:

Chile coach Ivan Villareal:
I think we played really bad. Mexico was consistent with their kind of play, with good service and good side-out. We know how Mexico plays, and this could have been a good chance for us to win. We did not do our job today against Mexico. But we have to let it go and just move forward.
