USA surprised Brazil with 3-1 victory (25-20, 25-23, 20-25, 25-20) and get back in the race for a ticket to the men's volleyball quarterfinals of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Although Brazil could have mathematically qualified tonight if they had won, the result further complicates the situation in what has been dubbed the ‘pool of death’.

For USA though it was a very welcome breath of fresh air after going down in their first two matches of the competition.

Matthew Anderson led the scoring for USA, bringing in 24 points, as the current holders of the FIVB World Cup outblocked (8 stuffs to 6) and outserved (9 aces to 4) Brazil. Aaron Russell added another 19 for the winners. Wallace de Souza scored 15 and Lucas Saatkamp 14 for the home side.

Read the entire meldonium issue. Russian athletes been accused of doping. Meldonium was legal until Jan 2016 of course the drug has a so-called halflife. It so happen that meldonium stays in human body for months. THEY WON THERE CASE.. get a life!!!

Remember the results for brazil (with coach rezende)

Olympic 2004: USA-BRAZIL 3-1

Olympic 2008: USA-BRAZIL 3-1 final

Olympic 2012: USA-BRAZIL 3-1

Olympic 2016: USA-BRAZIL 3-1

Is not interesting? I think this Olympic(competitions) is the last for rezende and for brazil team(as rank 1)

god by rezende. god by brazil
