The team of Sada Cruzeiro saved its best volleyball for the most important match of the FIVB Men’s World Championship and gave a volleyball lesson to Russia’s Lokomotiv on Sunday to capture the gold medal.




Marcelo Mendez, coach of Sada Cruzeiro: “We played excellent volleyball and everything was exceptional. The serve was our fundamental weapon. When we trailed in the third set (Yoandy) Leal had a sensational streak of aces that really boosted our confidence.”

Yoandy Leal, player of Sada Cruzeiro: “This is the biggest thing that ever happened to me. Winning the world championship for our team and here in Brazil is incredible. I want to dedicate the victory to all my family in Cuba who were following the match, for sure, and also to the fans of Sada Cruzeiro who have been so kind with me. I am very happy. About the game, the serves were the key for us today.”

Alexander Butko, captain of Lokomotiv: “Sada Cruzeiro played at a very high level and their fans are like a seventh player. They are very good and helped their team. It is a lesson for us because this is a new team. Playing in our first club world championship and finishing second is a good result for us.”
