We could have done better - Cantagalli


Riffa, Bahrain, August 22, 2017 - Italy posted a 3-1 win against China on Tuesday to complete the Preliminary Round of the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boy’s U19 World Championship with three wins. But the European side expressed that they could still work on many more aspects of their match as the competition progresses to the next phase.

Italy coach Mario Barbiero: I am happy because we won. Although I think it was not the best match for us. We had some problems in reception, but I am sure that my players will prepare for a strong match against a new set of opponents in the next round.

Italy player Diego Cantagalli: We won today but I think I am not completely satisfied with my performance. We could have done a lot more things in this match. We could have done better. We know our real capacity and ability beyond this. Of course, we have gained three important points, and we just have to better in the next match.
