Head Coach Fethi Mkaouar of Tunisia observing his team's performance

World Olympic Qualification Tournament websites:
“Nothing is decided yet, the first objective of winning was obtained. The pressure of asking the team for a specific result is too dangerous; first we must win and then wait for the other team’s results. Today’s performance was very positive; this has to continue not only for this important tournament but for the rest of the season”.
Player Ismail Moalla, Tunisia
“Normally we are stronger and better than Algeria, we’ve faced each other on many occasions so we knew how to beat them. I’m happy with today’s performance because we had fewer mistakes than yesterday against Chile. We are slowly getting into our rhythm and hopefully against Mexico we’ll prove we can go to the Olympics”.
Captain Amir Kerboua, Algeria
“Our performance had too many errors, overall it wasn’t good. We aren’t used to Mexico’s altitude and we just have to deal with the loss”.
Head Coach Ikhedji Mouloud, Algeria
“I believe fatigue is really affecting my boys. Mexico’s altitude continues to be an issue we’re adapting to and this is the reason we couldn’t sustain the same game level thru out the match. Our rhythm wasn’t even and not what we were hoping for”.
