ROAD TO RIO M: Iran smash Australia, China get one set vs. France!

by WoV

The national volleyball team of Iran has scored a victory at the tournament opening against Australia 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-18).



The Ausies couldn’t find any solution for Amir Ghafour who was everywhere on the court. He ended match with 19 points while on the other side Samuel Walker had 9 points.

The European champions France have also scored a victory! Tillie’s side beat China 3-1 (25-13, 22-25, 25-23, 25-21). After taking the first set easily, the French side somehow lost the second set and that made Tillie look nervous.

In the middle of the match, Tillie has decided to replace Ngapeth. Nicolas Marechal got the chance and he used it.

But, at the end, France took three points. The opposite Rouzier ended match with 22 points, Kevin Tillie added 19 while Ngapeth had 15 points. On the other side, Chen Zhang finished match with 15 points.
