Looks like Philippine Women’s Volleyball star Alyssa Valdez and Iran’s Mahsa Saberi became good friends.

Although they are enemies on the hardcourt, Saberi uploaded her selfie with Valdez during their encounter at the 6th Asian Women’s Volleyball Cup 2018 in Thailand.

Prior to their AVC meet, the two already met during their Under-23 stints.

In 2015, the Philippines and a brave, yet injured Phenom put up a gallant fight before bowing to Iran in the Rebisco Asian Under-23 Women’s Volleyball Championship.
