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.

What is your opinion about that videocheck at 12/11 - 13/11 ??
It seems to me that there is no block touch at all by the way… I was not against Kazan but I had never seen such a quick decision about a controversial challenge.

Can someone explain us why Boskovic didn’t play yesterday?
I really can’t find any excuse for this decision.
He could start the game with Boskovic, take the first two sets and then change her.
However, congratulations to Imoco! Reply
