“Brazil always save their best performances for the biggest matches, and are ready to take gold today in the World League final against the USA. Brazil played with a great tenacity against Italy,” he says. “They were always in control, and they have improved throughout the tournament. This team isn’t as talented as some Brazil sides of the past, but they always exploit their potential.
“Against Iran in the semifinal, a wonderful performance from Micah Christianson distributed the ball with great accuracy and unpredictably. The spikers exploited this opportunity. USA were very organised and focused, it was their best performance so far.”
