Brazil prevailed in the clash between the big continental rivals Argentina at the end of Week 2 in the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League.


Brazil maintained their invincibility in the 2019 VNL as they beat the fiercest South American rivals Argentina in an exciting Pool 7 game in Tokyo, Japan, by a 3-2 (25-20, 21-25, 26-28, 25-23, 15-12). The “Seleção” were 2-1 behind in sets but closed an intense fourth set into their favor to secure the tie-break in which they kept the perfect record in the tournament. Actually, Brazil is the only undefeated side in the 2019 VNL after two weeks (6-0), becoming the first team to win their opening six matches of a single VNL campaign. Yoandy Leal was Brazil’s best scorer with 18 points while Federico Pereyra poured in 26 for Argentina who are at 2-4.


Iran silenced 6,000 Japan’s fans at the Musashino Forest Sport Plaza in Tokyo by sweeping the home side in straight sets to record their fifth victory in six matches. Japan remained at two wins and four losses. Milad Ebadipuor top-scored for Iran with 14 points (3 kill blocks) which was the same figure that Yuki Ishikawa had in the scoresheet for Japan.

VNL 2019 M: France end Iran’s 7-game winning streak, Australia beat Portugal in battle to avoid relegation

Some of the players from the Portuguese national team during the match would get a hard blow from me. When he served Alex Ferreira and the ball was passing to Portugal, they did terrible things.

VNL 2019 M: Poletaev and Leal make admirable attack success rates, leading Russia and Brazil to wins in Pool 16

What about scarse reception of Leal? Took 6 aces suring the match.... What about services mistakes? So he made 11 points in attack but gave away directly 8!!! Great score, 2 positive..... Reply
