Poland coach Maciej Zendel

Riffa, Bahrain, August 26, 2017 – Poland coach Maciej Zendel said that his team’s height advantage was a factor in the 3-0 win over Mexico in the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boys’ U19 World Championship at the Isa City Sports Hall on Saturday.

Poland coach Maciej Zendel: The amount of mistakes today decided this victory because yesterday and today we did not commit a lot of it. Our block and attack was much better. We also had the height advantage over the Mexicans and that made it easy for us to make points.

Poland captain Szymon Jezierski: We made very small mistakes and that we are we glad that we won. This is our second win in this tournament. Unfortunately we had a bad start and lost our first five matches. We hope that in the next World Championship, Poland will perform better.
