All my players had the chance to play today – Bulgaria coach Antonina Zetova


Ljubljana, Slovenia, September 11, 2017 – Bulgaria made short work of Kenya in Pool B on Monday afternoon, beating the young African squad in straight sets (15-1, 15-5, 15-6, 15-11) at 2017 FIVB Women’s U23 World Championship in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Read here how coaches and captains saw the one-sided affair.

Bulgaria coach Antonina Zetova: “The result is okay but the quality of the game today was not that good. The one good thing is that all my players had a chance to play. Nevertheless, as I said I am not satisfied with the quality of our game. We must improve from game to game.”

Bulgaria captain Gergana Dimitrova: “Our game was okay today. Kenya did not show much resistance. However, I am happy we can stay focused in matches like that.”

Kenya coach Catherine Mabwi: “The reason why we lost today was our lack of confidence. Nothing more. I wish we had started the match the way we have played it in the last set.”

Kenya captain Shyrine Jepkemboi:
"We did not play our second match the way we have expected it. We managed to play better in the last set although we lost it at the end.”

All matches in Ljubljana are played under a new scoring system currently being tested: a best-of-seven, 15-point set format.
