Manama, Bahrain, July 22, 2018 – Chinese Taipei demolished their rivals’ defense from the attack line recording 3-1 (25-17, 25-15, 14-25, 25-18) win over Pakistan in the 19th Asian Men’s U20 Volleyball Championship at Isa Sport City Hall on Sunday.
Chang Yu-Sheng added 17 attacks and 1 ace leading Chinese Taipei in scoring, while Pakistan’s Faryad Ali Usman made 19 markers on a losing effort.
Pakistan opened the match with the winning attitude reaching first to the TTO 8-3. Soon after, Chinese Taipei got the helm of the match by capitalizing on their strong attacks, unleashing 47 points mostly from 17 attacks by Chang Yu-Sheng. Chinese Taipei won the first two sets 25-17, 25-15. Pakistan bounced back with the spearheads of Faryad Ali Usman to secure the third set victory 25-14. The ball distributed totally fair in the Chinese Taipei’s court giving the chance to the team to perform a better teamwork to close out the set 25-18 and the 3-1 match.
“We lost the second set because I tried to use younger players to give them chances to gain more experience. Thus, they did not pay attention to what I had told them and lost their focus. Fortunately, we won the match. I am happy that we could win all our matches in Pool E”, Chinese Taipei coach Yeh Chung-Kuei said.
“My players are stepping into this tournament for the first time. They are so young. I found them in a long talent-finding process ,taken mainly from far-fetched part of country. I am working with them seven months ago and I am sure they can be the future of Pakistan volleyball as in one set, they thrashed Chinese Taipei 25-14 that shows their capability to stay strong. On the other hand, Chinese Taipei played solidly and can be one of the strong sides to be reckoned with in this championship,” Pakistan coach Hamid Movahedi commented.
