We are happy to be back in the competition - Egypt coach Maged Mohamed

 
Ljubljana, Slovenia, September 12, 2017 – Egypt overpowered Thailand in a marathon match 4-2 (15-9, 7-15, 15-11, 9-15, 16-14, 15-4) in Pool A on Tuesday night to win as first African team a match at FIVB Women's U23 World Championship. Read here what coaches and captains said after the match.

Egypt coach Maged Mohamed: “This win is even more important for us as we needed to replace our starting-six setter due to injury. We are happy to be back in the competition and I hope we will continue on this level.”

Egypt’s Mariam Ahmed: “Of course we are very happy. We have been waiting so long for this win. Tonight’s victory keeps our hopes alive for a quarterfinal spot.”

Thailand coach Chamnan Dokmai: "Some of my players are very young. We did not start well and missed some discipline. My players did not follow the gameplan."

Thailand captain Tichaya Boonlert: "We could not stop Aya Elshamy, she played very well. However, now we will be even more motivated for the next matches."

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