Iran was defeated against Serbia 3-2 (21-25, 25-21, 26-28, 25-22, 15-8) in 2021 Volleyball Nations League (VNL) on Thursday.
“I think we had our chances, but we didn’t use them. We could have won the fourth set, but we committed too many mistakes after the 20th point. If not for those mistakes, we would probably have won,” Esfandiar said.
“In the tie-break Serbia ran away with the score and it was really hard to get back in the game, because they had a solid advantage. Now, the game is over, we have to rest and focus on match against Germany,” he added.
