Brazil and Russia are set to contribute the absolute highlight in the second day of preliminary action for the men’s tournament at Earls Court on Tuesday. The triple world champions and 2008 silver medalists captained by Giba opened on Sunday their quest for Olympic glory by cruising to a 3-0 win over Tunisia while the winners of the 2011 FIVB World League and World Cup coached by Vladimir Alekno did the same as they played Germany for their debut in London.

These sides have developed a long-lasting rivalry with the last match dating back to last year’s World Cup where Brazil downed Russia in straight sets in what was the only defeat of Mikhaylov & Co. there in Japan. Since Pool B is packed with world-class teams, the outcome of this match may already significantly impact on the final standings of the group and hence in the composition of the 1/4 finals. “We are focused on doing a very good Olympics” had stated Giba on Sunday night after his side’s win over Tunisia.
