“We needed a game like this”, says Turkey’s Lagumdzija


Resistencia, Argentina, August 18, 2015 - A fine display carved the path for Turkey’s qualification to Round of 16 in Argentina. The performance reached by the team was as important for the Turks as the result itself, according to the main actors - the players.

Adis Lagumdzija, Turkey player: "We played as a team today and the fans helped us a lot with their cheering. It was very important for us and we really needed a game like this. Thinking about tomorrow's game, our coach will tell us what to do and hopefully we'll win. We're really happy and I want to dedicate it to my father and mother for being always there for me."

Lou Kindt, Belgium player: "Today we lost our focus but we're happy we won one set against Turkey which is a great team. Of course we wanted the victory, but we gave the best we have, as we always do - that is really important for us. I felt very good today, it was one of my better matches, but losing is always disappointing."
