France edges Spain to win highlight of the day in Szeged
2013 CEV Volleyball European Championship - Men

Szeged, Hungary, September 6, 2012. In what was the absolute highlight for the opening day of the European qualifier in Szeged, France edged Spain 3:1 (25-18, 25-14, 17-25, and 28-26) to take three points that may be extremely important to determine the final charts of the group.
France started with a good tempo easily cashing the opening set (25-18) and things did not change in the second where the “Bleus” imposed their authority going for a speedy 25-14 for the provisional 2:0. Spain was able to change the course of the game in set 3 chiefly via the help provided by their opposite Iban Perez and finally the match got very close in set 4 where the audience in Szeged got to see some high-class Volleyball. After a very close battle, France got past at 28-26 seizing their first win of the tournament.

In the other match of the day Latvia beat the hosts of Hungary 3:1 (25-19, 18-25, 25-19, and 25-19). Hungary started out very slow and sleepy, quickly losing the opening set 19-25. The local heroes eventually woke up cruising to a comfortable 25-18 in set 2 before Latvia restored their supremacy in set 3 (25-19). The guests from Riga eventually stretched momentum also to set 4 and could pocket their first win of the tournament.
