And telling Foroyaa Sport what went wrong, Jawo who won the Qatar Beach Volleyball Series tourney, said from Tehran: ‘I think we lost the quarter finals against Iran because luck was not on our side. Secondly, maturity and experience because they are matured players and they have a lot of experience in beach volleyball.

‘They are among the best teams in Asia and they compete in many high level competitions like the world tours and world championship.’

Jawo insists the Iranians struggled to ride them over saying the Gambian team only got punished for their gaffes.

‘Honestly with all their experience, they found it very difficult to win us because we finished all our side outs but with our mistakes they end up winning the game.

‘All we need is support (finance) and sponsors so that we can compete in many world tours (for The Gambia).’
