Russia and Poland top charts at the end of Boys' World Champs prelims
News from the FIVB

Tijuana/Mexicali, Mexico, July 1, 2013. Brazil and Russia qualified with neat records to the round of sixteen of the FIVB Boys’ U19 World Championship set to take place on Wednesday in both Tijuana and Mexicali, Baja California.
Both teams won all their matches in straight sets to collect the maximum twelve points at their four outings during the preliminary pool round. Brazil completed their campaign in the prelims with a quick victory in straight sets (25-15, 25-23, and 25-15) over Algeria in Pool D, while Russia edged Finland also in consecutive frames (25-14, 25-15, and 25-20) in Pool C.
“We must focus on our next match, not on the championship,” Brazil head coach Percy Oncken said. “If we want to succeed we must keep playing at the same level and not slow down”.  
“Today I gave a chance to players from the bench,” Russia’s mentor Alexander Karikov said. “It was a day to test many situations and I changed players and gave everybody an opportunity to play”.

Poland and Argentina were the other two pool winners with 11 points in Pools A and B respectively. Poland breezed past Belgium in straight sets (25-22, 25-13, and 25-21) while Argentina downed Turkey 25-20, 25-17, and 25-20. “We have reached our first objective which was winning our pool,” Poland’s head coach Wieslaw Czaja stated. “The first round has passed and now we have to concentrate on the next matches”.  

In the round of the last sixteen teams, Poland take on Turkey, Argentina meet hosts Mexico, Russia clash with United States and Brazil test out the likes of Finland. China, Cuba, Iran and Korea qualified in second place in pools A, B, C and D respectively. China defeated Tunisia (25-14, 25-22, and 25-21), Cuba won over Chile (25-21, 25-20, 17-25, and 25-16), Iran beat Rwanda (25-19, 25-19, and 25-16) and Korea lost to United States in five sets (22-25, 25-20, 25-21, 15-25, 17-15). In the next round, China face Chile, Cuba battle Belgium, Iran meet Egypt and Korea go against France.  

Teams Tunisia, Japan, Rwanda and Algeria will contest a round-robin for the 17-20 positions.
