On Thursday Russia will play Italy while Poland and Turkey will cross their ways in the other semifinal.

Finland, the Netherlands, France and Belgium will join the classification matches for the positions 5-8.

On Wednesday 2013 European and world champions Russia did once more show their class and supremacy in this age group by cruising to their third consecutive victory, this time by easily routing Turkey in straight sets (25-19, 25-20, and 25-16).

Once again Russian opposite Victor Poletaev was the most prolific scorer of his side with 12 points.

Russia’s quality was so outstanding that no Turkish player could finish the game in double digits, the most consistent being Cansin Enaboifo with 8 points.

In the other game on schedule for Pool A, Finland cruised past the “Oranjes” in four close sets (22-25, 25-22, 25-22, and 25-23) with Sakari Mäkinen pacing the Finnish side in their winning effort with 17 points.

Finland finishes third in the group with 3 points while the hosts round out the table with three consecutive defeats and no points.
