Cairo, Egypt, June 26, 2016 - Egypt dealt Turkey their first loss of the FIVB Volleyball World League 2016, delighting the home fans in the final match of the weekend in Cairo.
Nehad Shehaata, coach of Egypt: Turkey is a very good and strong team, they won all their matches.
The encounter was difficult and we studied everything about them. All my players are heroes and they proved that there is no difference between the first row and the second row. I am very proud of all them, I hope to win the coming three matches to reach the final in Portugal.
Emanuelle Zanini, coach of Turkey: First of all I congratulate the Egyptian team for the win and they played amazing this evening. We were surprised with the power of serves and continuity.
In the fourth set they continued to push serves with little mistakes and this is the key of the match.
We were confident before the match that we could win the match and we played a good match, maybe the best match we played in this level.
I think my team can improve even if we lost, yes I am not happy for losing, but we know what we need to do in the future.
