Iran was defeated against France in straight sets (25-20, 25-19, 25-21) in its second friendly series at Harnes on Saturday.

“I’m happy with the players’ performance,” France coach Laurent Tillie said. “We didn’t have the right rhythm in the warm-up but the players were fine and they were able to show better form on their block. It is nice to see everyone is in tune and paying attention to the instructions before the game.”

On Friday, Iran lost to France 3-1 (25-19, 25-27, 33-31, 27-25) in a beautiful game.

These two matches were part of preparation for the World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Tokyo Japan for the two teams.
