Russia and Bulgaria beat Brazil and Argentina respectively on day one of World League Finals
News from the FIVB

Mar del Plata, Argentina, July 17, 2013. Olympic champions Russia repeated their London 2012 final performance against world No. 1 Brazil with a 3-2 (25-17, 23-25, 22-25, 25-19, 15-11) win in the opening game of the FIVB Volleyball World League Finals in Mar del Plata while Bulgaria stretched their winning sequence against Argentina to eight matches following a 3-1 (28-26, 25-23, 20-25, and 25-23) victory in the second match of the day.
The wins mean Russia and Bulgaria have taken a giant step towards the World League semifinals while Brazil must now beat Canada in their second Pool E match on Friday while Argentina face a tough Italian Pool D assignment on the same day. Russia will play their final pool match against Canada on Thursday while Bulgaria plays Italy.
Bulgaria’s Tsvetan Sokolov who top scored against Argentina with 29 points says there are no easy matches in the World League and was relieved with his team’s opening-day win. “It was a difficult match for us, but we are very happy with this victory. The first set was even and it’s important to start the match by winning it. In this World League every match is hard, but we hope to play the next match at a high level too”.
Argentina captain Luciano De Cecco thought his team played well and had a good share of the match, but still need to improve their performance. “We had opportunities to win the game but we couldn’t, and that is an error that we have to correct. But we played well, better than previous matches. We have to see what we did wrong before the next game against Italy”.
