Cameroon’s Piata Emelda has told kick442.com that it wasn’t an easy start in their first game against Botswana in the ongoing Africa Women’s Volleyball Championship in Egypt but they will ameliorate against Algeria.
Speaking just after the win over Botswana the Piata (Central) sounded very confident after her team swept all 3 sets but acknowledged it wasn’t the kind of start that can make the team relax before the Algeria game on Wednesday.
“We struggled in the beginning, I think we felt and realized we had to do more and did just that explaining why we finished the first set strongly, we have to improve and you know games came very fast so we go home reflect and prepare for a better outing here on Wednesday”.
Holders Cameroon will challenge 2009 champions Algeria on Wednesday at 6PM local time in their second game while current vice champions of Africa and 5 times champions Kenya face Botswana.
Algeria accepted a 3 sets to 0 defeat to Kenya in their opening game making the game against Cameroon and all important one for the Algerian.
Cameroon is looking to become just the second country in the tournament’s 20 years history to win the tournament back to back, Kenya alone holds that record.
