Russia´s victory over title defender Brazil

Russia´s victory over title defender Brazil

Before the last round Brazil had maximum points, whilst Russia had one defeat in their account.

At yesterday´s press conference both teams were aiming for victory, but had the biggest respect for their opponents.

Brazil showed a marvelous first period, their playmaker Bruno Oliveira showed a  magnificent performance giving assists to the team´s line-player and scoring himself.

Despite the South American lead Russia came closer, the Sbornaja scored through their wing player vital points, but Brazil secured first period victory.

In the second period Russia man-marked Brazil´s playmaker Oliveira and this was the key element for their strong play to equal the result.

Antonio Guerra-Peixe`s team keep on fighting, but the Russian bear was stronger and won the set.

In the shoot-out Brazil missed several times, the Sbornaja showed nerves and so the east-europeans finished first in their group, followed by the South Americans.

Men´s game:

Brazil – Russia 1:2 (24:18) (16:19) (6:7)
