Yali: I am hungry for every win


Iran's Porya Yali listens on to instructions from coach Reza Vakili Farjad

Riffa, Bahrain, August 22, 2017 - Iran fueled their momentum going into the next phase of the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boy’s U19 World Championship as they won a straight-sets match against Czech Republic to top Pool D of competition on Tuesday at Isa City Sports Hall.

Iran coach Reza Vakili Farjad: I would say I am about 80 per cent satisfied with the performance of the team so far. I think it has something to do with the age, that they can be prone to too many mistakes. We do not have any solution for this except time itself. We need experience.

Iran player Porya Yali: This is the second time I have played in the World Championship. Two years ago, I was mostly staying on the bench, and now I can play on the court. I have great motivation to perform well each time. I am hungry for every win.
