Japanese players listen to instructions from coach Shingo Sakai.
Mexicali, Mexico, September 19, 2015 - Japanese coach Shingo Sakai admitted that the first set against Egypt was too complicated.
But working on the right substitutions was a key factor to solve the match in their favor.

Grzegorz Rys, the Polish coach in charge of Egypt declared that his team showed a better performance.
