317 0

Finland have scored the first victory at the men's volleyball World Championship.

 

This victory keeps Finland in the race for the next round, while the Cuban boys are in difficult situation, even though they have three more games to play.

Only in the third set, Cuba managed to raise the level of play, delivering some good actions and forcing the game into the fourth sets.

However, Finland wanted to avoid the tie-break so they finished the job in the fourth and clinched the win.

Three players had the same scoring performance: Urpo Sivula, Markus Kauro and Antti Makinen had 12 points each in Finland, while Miguel David Gutierrez Suarez had 17 in Cuba.

TURKISH CUP W: Fenerbahçe and Eczacıbaşı prevail in marathon semis, Vargas pours in 38 for “Yellow Angels”

Amazing game. Vargas despite best score still seem like unbrushed diamond, which can be even better. I hope coach Terzic could see that. Eda Erdem is also true capitan, not just in ranks but she make joy in team. Antonijevic could also save some net balls, like Ognjenovic normally does. Looking forward to the Finale. Ezaci is very 'beatable'. Reply

Fener should not let Bricio go. It is a massve mistake of Terzic.
If he really wants Mihajlovic, let club buy her too. Reply

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

I read she said earlier that she is leaving to go back to the Italian league. Was she really waived? She is a great player. She is one of the reason why Fenerbahe is doing so well this season along with Vargas. Reply
