The boys performed really well, there were very decent fights. Some fought very hard, so I think we have met the expectations of our fans. Now we will prepare for the World Cup in November. It will require more efforts of course, there is much more competition in the World Cup. I would wish to beat our score. We have been the second after Russia for three years. It is very hard to beat their team. But nothing is impossible, we are committed to victory!
