“In the first half, we played well. In the second half, we started making individual mistakes, and that’s the reason of the loss”.

“We performed well in the tournament generally, but we played today with many injured players. We learnt a lot from this tournament and we’ll use it for the future tournaments”.

Abdallah Haidamou – ASFAR Coach

“It was a good match. We talked with the players and agreed that now we have to at least get a medal to Morocco after we lost the chance for both gold and silver medals”.

“We hope the club’s chief gives the girls the financial prizes they deserve”.

“Ghizlane Chebbak is great in and outside of the field. She’s the beating heart of the team, and today she got what she deserved”
