After their shaky start in the tournament with a shocking tie-break loss to France on Friday, 2014 U19 European champions Serbia were definitely back on track on Sunday as they routed Turkey in three sets (25-10, 25-20, 25-23) to claim first place in Pool G and this way they also secured their participation at this year’s FIVB Volleyball Women’s U20 World Championship in Puerto Rico.

The final day of competition in the city of Ruma had started earlier in the afternoon with France claiming their second victory of the weekend after seeing off their opponents from the Czech Republic in three quick sets (25-18, 25-14, 25-13).

Marijana Boričić, coach of Serbia, said: “We didn’t expect this kind of victory, especially after the performance we showed in the last couple of days. However, we found the right rhythm, the girls did their best and I am very happy with our game, and of course with the victory tonight.”
