Successful performance by Islam Abdelkader in offence gave the initial advantage to Egypt as they piled up an 8-4 lead by the first technical time-out. But then the Egyptians started making too many mistakes and Iran equalised at 10-10 to gradually take control of the scoreboard and claim the first set by 25-21.
In set three the Iranians stepped up their blocking efforts, especially those from Amirali Mohammadfathali, to sweep their opponents by the impressive 25-11 and claim the victory.
Captain Javad Hosseinabadi contributed 11 points to Iran’s victory to become the top scorer of the match. His Egyptian counterpart Islam Abdelkader and Mohamed Masoud scored 8 points each for their team.
