Brazil didn’t have too many chances to celebrate against Cuba

It was the first time since the 1999 World League semifinals that Brazil had lost in such a manner to Cuba and if they miss the semifinals, it will be the first time since 1998, when they finished fifth, that they will finish outside of the top four in the FIVB’s annual volleyball event for men.

Zorzi says the world No. 1 and last year’s silver medallists were slow and sleepy, not their normal model and now need to beat Poland, ranked 4th in the world, convincingly on Thursday.
