Rwanda coach Mossad Rashad admits he was disappointed to see his men’s team fail to reach the knockout stages of the World Para Volley Sitting Volleyball World Cup which is underway in Cairo, Egypt. Rwanda failed to advance to the knockout stages after losing both their Group A games against Iraq (3-2) in the opening game before hosts Egypt beat them in three straight sets (25-6, 25-16, 25-10) on Tuesday, November 14. Rashad’s men will now play the 9-13 classification games against France on Wednesday, Algeria and England on Thursday before playing India on Friday as they look to finish in a better place below the top 8. The Egyptian coach regrets that his side had a difficult campaign but he remains optimistic that they can still perform well during the classification fixtures to improve their rankings.
