I feel amazing!” said Rok Mozic after the match.
Winning or losing changes everything for me. I had two bad days after we lost to Bulgaria, so I wanted this win a lot. France is a good team, but we managed the situation at the end of the set. We also had the opportunities to win by 3-0. This is an important three points for us and we need to continue this way. This is my passion. I like this game, I like winning, I like playing for my country with these teammates and I try to enjoy every point. Great emotions today, but we need to focus on tomorrow. Iran for sure is a very strong team, but if play well, we can win that game too.

Andrea Giani’s players, on the other hand, played a good game but the rivals were better in the devisive moments. TimothΓ©e Carle, recently conforme at Germany’s Berlin Recycling Volleys, was the most prolific player with 16 points.
On the same Pool, straight sets win also Iran, who down China (23:25, 25:15, 25:20, 25:14) with a very strong performance of opposite Amin Esmaeilnezhad, 26 points including 6 aces and 1 block.
