Our Team Getting Better: Saeid Marouf - Sports news

Iran defeated Australia 3-1 (25-22, 18-25, 25-18, 27-25) on Saturday. It had defeated Canada 3-1 on Friday.

Both teams knew each other very well because in the last month we played each other three or four times, and they have good quality. I think we were perfect in side-out and our reception worked very well. That helped us to win the sets and led to this good result,” Marouf said.

I think the last two days we have been in good condition. We started (the tournament) badly, but everybody has been getting better. On the other hand, we have to play Brazil, the best team in the world, so we need to go just to enjoy the game and not care about the result,” he added.

We have good players in our team. In each position we have young players, so I think this is strategy. We don’t know who will play against Brazil, but I think now our second setter (Javad Karimi) is playing very well. He has enough focus in the game. He played two games and we won these two games. I don’t know but I think we will continue like this,” Marouf concluded.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.

Things to Know Before Trip
One of the most important things to remember is that Iranians aren’t Arabs, they’re Persian. They speak Farsi (and other dialects), not Arabic, and some people might feel offended if you great them with Arabic words.
