I hope we can play better each day - Hizal


Riffa, Bahrain, August 19, 2017 - Turkey picked up their first win on Saturday in the 2017 FIVB Volleyball Boy’s U19 World Championship with a 3-0 match against Chile, but the European side is still searching for more ways to improve their level of play.

Turkey coach Umit Hizal: After our loss in the first match of this championship, we had a long discussion. My players learned from the match we lost. I think now, they know better on what to do in specific situations, and I hope we can just play better and better each day.

Turkey captain Adis Lagumdzija: Our first match in the competition was catastrophic, we played really bad, like never before. Today, we played a bit better, but there are still a lot of things to improve on. We hope to be able to perform better in the coming matches.
