“We worked hard during two weeks in a training camp here, played some scrimmage and friendly matches, and we expect this can pay off”, he added. “It is difficult, but we must go on against other rivals such as Turkey and Canada.”
Meanwhile captain Enrique Ugalde, recognized there were some anxiety to begin at home in front of their audience. “Sure we feel that, and had some problems in the second set, as the players of Egypt went out to improve, but I think they were also nervous,” He said.
