319 0

Gianlorenzo Blengini's side has now 2-0 score as they defeated Belgium in straight sets today at the World Championship.


Belgium simple couldn't do anything in this game as the rival had a huge help from the fans. 

Today Italy was superior and better than us, they played really good, especially in breakpoint phase. I haven’t ever seen their defense like this before. They deserve very much this victory, we can make progress for the rest of the tournament to make difficulties for these strong teams who will come in the future,” says Sam Deroo Belgium captain. 

Great game, great supporters! We were able to play as we planned, high rythm plays to put them under pressure. We were concentrated and determined, and now we can't relax, our thoughts are already on Argentina, the last game versus them we were defeated, we are looking for another revenge,” says the top scorer of the game with 20 points, Ivan Zaytsev.

Italy now have 2-0 score, while Belgium have one win out ot two games.

WCH 2018 M: These are the Pools for the second round of the World Champs!

Re: @Sorin Acela
Agree!!! In addition to that, first round groups were UNBALANCED. For instance, Group A consists of really weak teams: Italy, Slovenia, Dom. Rep., Arg, Japan and Belgium!!! On the other hand, Pool C has SERBIA, USA and RUSSIA, most probably ITALY would have lost against all of these 3 teams. This is UNFAIR! Teams should not be charged with their first round performances because of this obvious unbalanced groups!! AGAIN, CROOKED FIVB!!! Reply

maybe it's time to reward constant performance and results throughout the whole championship instead of last games Reply

The FIVB destroyed the World Championship by keeping the records of the first round for the second round! This way, most teams have no plausible chance to promote to round 3, including Russia and France!!!! Reply
