It was once again the game of Russian line-player Alexandr Tatarintsev. With his fantastic goals and spin-shots the Sbornaja outclassed the African champions Egypt in the first period and had no problems either to secure victory in the second set.
There, Egypt pulled themselves together and delivered a better game, however this just wasn´t enough to level the sets and go for shoot-out.
Nevertheless, Egypt remain in race for a semi-final place, whilst Russia with their superb results today and yesterday belong now to the favorites in the tournament.
Russia – Egypt 2:0 (22:5) (18:12)
