HONG KONG, June 19 (Xinhua) — China girls’s volleyball head coach Cai Bin instructed Xinhua on Monday that his crew should be extra scientific, after China concluded the FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League (VNL) in Hong Kong with two wins and two defeats.
China capped off their first week of VNL in Nagoya, Japan with 4 wins on the bounce and prolonged that successful streak within the first two matches at Hong Kong Coliseum, earlier than struggling back-to-back defeats towards Poland and Italy.
“We played as a collective, but the defeats exposed our weakness in seizing the key points. We had chances in the two matches, but were not decisive enough, so we need to strengthen our defensive play,” Cai famous.
China may need claimed victory towards Italy, however twice fumbled the lead, permitting their opponents to finish the turnaround.
“That also indicated that we lack maturity. We did a good job in Nagoya, but we had ups and downs here,” Cai mentioned.
Cai revealed that China will keep in Hong Kong for a couple of extra days earlier than the third week of VNL in Suwon, South Korea.
“We were just set up last year, so in the future we need to stabilize the frame and realize the potential of the substitutes, and improve our teamwork to avoid mistakes.”
The third week of VNL takes locations from June 28 to July 2 as China tackle Serbia, the Dominican Republic, South Korea and the United States.
