Egypt coach Nehad Shehata:
Unfortunately, my players didn’t play well today especially at the start of the match. They didn’t feel the ball and they didn’t feel the hall. In the third set they tried to come back, but Bahrain played better than us today. We had some problems in some skills but we will work on them in the next matches.Egypt captain George Bakhit:
Our team is playing on a high level, but we didn’t show that today. I really cannot find a reason why we played like that. We will come back and try to win the next match.
