LUOHE, Henan province - Chinese national men's volleyball team defeated Kazakhstan 3-0 at the China International Men's Volleyball Tournament here in Luohe, Central China's Henan province on Tuesday.
China beat Kazakhstan 25-20, 25-23, 25-16 with no difficulty because Kazakhstan was not a strong team.
"My team consists of young players who didn't completely obey my order, so I'm very angry," said Gilyazutdinov Rafael, the assistant coach of Kazakhstan.
"Although we won the game, I am not satisfied with their performance because they didn't know how to play at the first set, and this is not our real power," said China coach Xie Guochen.
"The goal of this Tournament is to make players adapt to the game, so I will send on every player to play," said Xie.
China will play against Kazakhstan, India and one club of Chinese volleyball league Henan Tianguan in the Tournament which is being held between May 21 and 23.
