Iran have barely managed to defeat Belgium 3-2 (23-25, 25-17, 25-23, 22-25, 15-12). It was a stunning game in front of Iranian fans in Tehran. 

In the end, home fans had a huge reason to be happy since their team scored an important victore. Tomorrow, the Iranian team is going to meet Serbia and it will be an emotional moment for Igor Kolakovic, who was a coach of Serbia for many years.
