Riffa, Bahrain, August 25, 2017 - Japan captured a semi-finals berth at the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boys’ U19 World Championship by winning 3-0 against Czech Republic Isa City Sports Hall on Friday. Japan coach Hiroshi Honda:
We prepared for this match by organising our block formation because Czech Republic can play fast volleyball. Japan captain Kento Miyaura:
I am very happy for winning this match against Czech Republic. For sure it was not an easy match, but we have to be confident. Even when our level of play goes down or when we make mistakes, we have to keep believing in ourselves. Quick links - Volleyball:

Czech Republic coach Jiri Zach: We made a lot of mistakes. Japan is a strong team. They have good defence on the floor and I can say they played with a big heart. Unfortunately, we were not able to play the same way as they did.
