In their last match of the pool phase, they hammered out a 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-17) win over Mexico. Iran will face Egypt in Wednesday’s Round of 16, while Mexico has to wait for the last match in the pool to find out whether they will make it to the Round of 16 at all.
Mexico’s good blocking was not nearly enough to put a brake on Iran’s flight to the top position. In the first two sets Farhad Nafarzadeh’s players once again showed their abilities to play some great volleyball.
Inspired by their fans on the stands who gave them amazing support again, the Iranians moved to gain a 2-0 sets advantage with 25-20 and 25-21.
Despite having already secured the first place in the pool, they did not stop at that and continued to dominate on the court during the third set. After 25-17 they certainly had a good reason to celebrate.
