Russia managed to stay superior during the whole match and the difference was 7 goals after the first half (14-7). In the second half, Russia kept the South Americans in a comfortable distance while both Mayssa Pessoa and Elena Utkina showed some great saves. Brazil was struggling to score and couldn’t decrease the distance, Russia won by 8 goals (24-16) and remains undefeated in the tournament.
