We are getting better - Lagumdzija


Riffa, Bahrain, August 22, 2017 - Turkey needed to play steadily to win in the decider against Argentina (28-26, 25-22, 21-25, 25-19, 15-11) on Tuesday at the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boy’s U19 World Championship in Bahrain’s Isa City Sports Hall.

Turkey coach Umit Hizal: We came into this competition after many other tournaments and some of my players are a bit tired from successive events. Adis (Lagumdzija) is one of them, and today, I can see that he is slowly getting back to the best level of his game. He is the leader of the team, and I think he proved that in this match. I believe we can play even better in the next round.

Turkey captain Adis Lagumdzija: Today, we played much better than our previous games. If we can play as good as today, or even better specifically in reception, then I think we can succeed in the next round. I was not able to have a lot of time to train and prepare with this team, but slowly, we are starting to communicate more easily. We are getting better.
