by WoV

Turkey rallied to defeat Italy 3-1 (25-23, 25-19, 22-25, 25-23) in their final preliminary round match of the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix in Yantarny on Sunday to book their place in the Final Round.



This is the first time Turkey have beaten Italy in the World Grand Prix. Italy won the last two meetings between the sides in 2008 and 2013.

It is the second time they have reached the Finals after their effort in 2012 where they won bronze.

Valentina Diouf topped the scores with 24 points for Italy despite the losing effort.
