Iran failed to book a place at the FIVB Volleyball Men's U21 World Championship after losing to Poland on Thursday. The Persians were defeated against their powerhouse European opponent 3-2 (27-29, 25-21, 20-25, 25-20, 15-11) in Pool E.

Tomasz Fornal was the best scorer for his team with 20 points. Bartosz Kwolek and captain Jakub Kochanowski followed with 17 and 16, respectively. Iran's captain Rasoul Aghchehli was once again the best scorer of the match with 25 points.

Iran will play Argentina on Saturday in 5th-8th place classification match.

"That was not a match, it was a war. Both teams showed excellent performances. The important point is that we made more mistakes. That is why Poland won the battle," Iran coach Behrouz Ataei told fivb.org.com.

Javad Karimi, player of Iran, said: "We made a very good match against the world champion from 2015. We tried very hard to win and we are so sad to have lost."
