WGCC 2017 M: Blengini – “Obviously, I’m very disappointed”; Kolakovic – “We just made the first surprise”

730 0

Italy didn’t manage to defeat Iran at the start of the World Grand Champions Cup 2017.

 

Obviously, I’m very disappointed with the result. We’re very disappointed we couldn’t win in the tie-break. The start of the match wasn’t so good, we were too tense and couldn’t play good volleyball. But after that, we kept our hopes up and were able to take the second and fourth sets. We couldn’t win today but Iran deserved the victory. The fact that Iran did so well is not something new. They’ve been playing at a high level for many years now. Today they defended more than us and better than us, which made it an even and tough match. They also counter-attacked very well and generally played better than us,” says Blengini.

We played against a great opponent, one of the best teams in Europe. At the start of the season, we lost 3-0 to them. Today, we had the opportunity to win 3-1 but missed out on that, but I’m happy with the victory. We arrived here with some hopes and dreams and would like to make some surprises against stronger teams than us in the world. Tonight, we made the first surprise. We have opportunities to make surprises in the coming days as we play USA, Brazil, France and Japan,” says Kolakovic.

Supreme are the favorite to win this tournament with their strong majority core NT members, but if they aren't focus, could possibly go NEC Red Rockets way instead like in the pool stage. Reply
