Russia and Serbia will represent Europe at next year’s FIVB World Cup in Japan where the first tickets to the 2016 Rio Olympics will be at stake. The tie between Serbia and Italy is broken by Serbia’s performance at last year’s European Championship where the Balkan team ended up in fourth place whereas Italy had to be content with sixth place.
