The national volleyball team of Russia gambled with its destiny during the third set and rival had two set points. Luckily for Russia, they didn't manage to use them...



The head coach of Russia Vladimir Alekno has combined all players during this match. 

He started with Grankin as setter, Muserskiy as opposite, Mikhaylov and Sivozhelez as receivers Vlasov and Volvich as middles and Alexander Ianutov as a libero. Afterwards, the other players got the chance to play except one – Sergey Tetyukhin.

Russia was relaxed and they barely managed to win the third set. The rival managed to save two Russia‘s match balls and believe it or not, they had two set points. What happened next?

The block of Russia was perfectly working in decisive moments and they scored new win!
