Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 29, 2015 – Argentina defeated Tunisia 3-2 in the last game of Pool B in the FIVB Men’s U23 World Championship at Al Ahli Club in Dubai, on Saturday. Read more about coaches’ and captains’ opinions.

Argentina coach Martin Lopez: Today we were not in our best level both physically and mentally because we played back to back five sets. But we got big contribution from the bench. Our players came in and played great. We have a really big team. We will play a hard game against Iran. Every team is playing good volleyball. We have to prepare good and concentrate.

Argentina captain Gonzalo Quiroga: Tunisia played good, it was a hard game for us. They played a good level and hit the ball hard. It was hard for us to focus on the game after our last two matches which ended in five sets. That played a big role today. Now we think about Iran and will try to win our last two games.

Tunisia coach Mondef Belaiba:
Our general performance was first class. We played good. I am satisfied with our five games during the preliminary round. This team will be senior in the future and we will play in African Championship and FIVB World League.

Tunisia player Malek Chekir:
In the first set we made so many serve faults and that cost us the set. But in the third and fourth sets we were good. In thie break we lost our focus as a team. That is why we lost.
