World League has started since few weeks ago! I think that the best match of last week was Brasil vs Poland


Stadium was all red and fans were wonderful! However Poland couldn't use from that condition and lost, but 1 point against Brasil is not bad!


And also Iran played a very good match against Russia, Olympic winner, and showed a great performance!


Iran could win at least 2 sets in the first match, but Russia didn't allow and used from their experience! I think that Iran lost because of lack of ecperience!


However, Iran will play in Tehran next week against Serbia, of course 12000 fans and more will be at the stadium! I remember that Iran beat Serbia once 3-2! This shows Iran can beat Serbia again


Go Go Iran

It depends on each team ranking! If a team ranking is high and it's at the top, Russia for example, that team will host 3 countries in 2 matches! That means when a team hosts 3 countries in 2 matches, the home team will have 6 matches in it's country!


Iran is in pool 2, because has lower ranking than other teams, Iran will host just 2 countries,Serbia and Germany,!

Russia thrill home fans with straight sets win over Serbia

Russia's coaching team help plot the victory over Serbia

Kaliningrad, Russia, June 14, 2013 - Russia beat Serbia 3-0 (29-27, 25-14, 25-20) on Friday in the first of their two FIVB World League meetings of the weekend.

Nikolay Pavlov and Spiridonov Alexey topped the home side’s scoring with 16 and 14 points respectively, while Aleksandar Atanasijevic scored 14 for the visiting side.

The first set saw both teams come out strongly, furiously trading the points up to the first technical time-out (8-6). But Russia then jumped 10-6 ahead and forced Serbia call for a time-out. Fine work at the net by Russia meant the visitors struggled to recover, but Serbia finally found their rhythm to level the score at 20-20. They traded points, with Serbia grabbing a game point at 26-27, but Russia regrouped. Coach Andrey Voronkov took a time-out and his side attacked well to take the set 29-27.

Serbia started the second set slowly, with some mistakes when receiving the ball, letting Russia’s Nikolay Pavlov and Alexey Spiridonov attack effectively. Soon the hosts gained a four point advantage at 10-6. Blocks from Nikolay Apalikov and aces from Evgeny Sivozhelez extended the lead to 18-10, and Russia maintained it till the end of the set 25-14.

It was more of the same in the third set. Russia's superior attacks, led by Alexey Spiridonov, again gave the hosts the lead. They were 8-6 up at the first technical time-out, and successfully kept their distance. Serbia couldn't respond, making service mistakes and Nikolay Pavlov closed the match.

The match was seen by 6,260 spectators.

The two sides will meet at the same place at 18:00 local time (14:00 GMT) tomorrow.

Brazil's coach has 'great expectations for this World League'

San Martín, Argentina, June 14, 2013 – Brazil took one more step in its undefeated streak at the FIVB World League, in a 3-0 win against Argentina on Friday.

“We have great expectations for this World League, after the two victories in Poland and the one tonight,” said Brazil’s head coach Bernardo Rezende. “Both teams are renewed and for us this is a very important chance to try new players, as it is for Argentina, as they are already qualified for the Finals. That, too, is our goal.”

The three set victory, (20-25, 21-25 and 15-25), was facilitated by Brazil’s strong serves.

“First of all, I want to congratulate Brazil for the victory,” said Argentina’s captain Luciano De Cecco “We had many trouble today with the serving, not only our serve wasn’t good but besides Brazil hurt us a lot with his serving. That kept us from displaying our game. We hope to improve tomorrow.”

Argentina showed signs of defeat by the third set and fell behind to 10-19, giving Brazil enough edge to be cool towards the victory.

“We did what we always do: serve well and have a good overall performance. Argentina wasn’t in their best night. We had a pretty smooth victory,” said Brazil’s captain Bruno Rezende.

“I think Argentina is trying to find its game, because they are already in Mar del Plata,” said Brazilian player William Arjona. “We played the way we want and that resulted in a very good output. It was important to win 3-0 and we want to improve even more for tomorrow.”

Argentina and Brazil play Match 36 on Saturday, June 15 instead of Sunday June 16 as previously announced at the new time of 23:30 GMT (20:30 local time), where Argentina will try to redeem itself for a comeback.

“We made a lot of mistakes,” said Argentina’s Head Coach Javier Weber. “We must be stronger in the middle of the net. We failed a lot in receiving and that was our main problem. At the same time, I think Nicolás (Uriarte) played well and we could play at similar levels than Brazil, but they were much more effective.”

“Our serve wasn’t good tonight. We didn’t play at all like we did in US and, on the other hand, they served very well. Now we’re just thinking on doing better tomorrow,” said Argentina’s player Nicolás Uriarte.

World League week three begins with full 3-0 sweeps

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 15, 2013 – Every FIVB World League match on Friday ended with teams sweeping their opponents in 3-0 victories for Russia, Italy, Canada, Brazil and the USA.
Serbia, Cuba, Korea, Argentina and France didn’t have a chance, as their opponents won set after set on day one of the third week of the 2013 FIVB Volleyball World League.

Russia, Italy and Brazil remain undefeated in this year’s tournament, as Cuba and France have yet to win a match.

Russia and Serbia faced-off in Friday’s first match, with the home team winning 3-0 (29-27, 25-14, 25-20). Serbia’s captain Dragan Stankovic called his side's worst defeat in two years. Russia are top of Pool B with three wins out of three. Serbia remain in second place with two wins and one loss. The two sides will meet again at 18:00 local time (14:00 GMT) on Saturday.

Russia remains undefeated in the 2013 World League, breaking Serbia’s winning streak. If Russia wins Saturday’s match against Serbia, it will begin the World League 4-0 for the third time in the last four years.

Italy also swept its match 3-0 against Cuba (25-20, 25-17, 25-23) in the first of two meetings between the teams on Friday at home. Italy are now second in Pool B, one point behind Russia, with eight points. Cuba lie in fifth after losing all three of their matches so far. The two sides meet in Florence on Sunday, 16 June at 19:00 GMT.

Italy also remains undefeated, marking the fourth consecutive year in which it has won at least its first three matches of the World League. If Italy wins Sunday’s matche, it will improve to 4-0 for the first time since 2011, when it started 6-0.

Brazil prevailed in straight sets against Argentina (20-25, 21-25 and 15-25). The away team proved they are serious about their commitment to this year’s World League.

“We have great expectations for this World League, after the two victories in Poland and the one tonight,” said Brazil’s head coach Bernardo Rezende. “Both teams are renewed and for us this is a very important chance to try new players, as it is for Argentina, as they are already qualified for the Finals. That, too, is our goal.”

Korea accepted weakness in their 0-3 loss (25-10, 25-18) against home-team Canada. Korea started set one with some promise, but Canada regained its composure and confidence to win by six points in the first set, eventually taking the second and third sets.

"We were technically weak, especially in our serving. We weren't ready and we are looking forward to the next game,” said Korea’s coach Ki-Won Park.

USA wowed their fans at home with a full sweep against winless France (25-15, 29-27, 25-16). Team USA kept up a strong attack at the net and held off a second-set rally by France as it defeated the European side. USA’s Matt Anderson, who was named Player of the Match, led all scorers with 22 points on 17 kills, three blocks and two aces.

All teams will meet again this weekend, with Japan and Finland also joining week three matches on Saturday.

Fukuzawa leads Japan to comeback win against Finland




Komaki, Japan, June 16, 2013 – After picking up their first home win under new coach Gary Sato, hosts Japan faced another difficult match against Finland on Sunday in Pool C of the FIVB 2013 World League. Japan dropped a tough first set, but rebounded for a second straight win in Komaki, 3-1 (23-25, 25-21, 25-19, 25-22).

Japan was led by an aggressive Tatsuya Fukuzawa with 24 points, and was supported by Yu Koshikawa with 16. Leading Finland was Urpo Sivula with 14 points and Matti Oivanen with 12, including four blocks.

Finland looked much better out of the gate compared to Saturday, with Matti Oivanen putting a hard block on Koshikawa for a score and Mikko Esko driving a spike for a 6-2 lead. But Japan would battle back with defensive hustle, tying it at 16-16 with a smart Koshikawa spike off the block. It remained close until late, but Finland snatched the set 25-23 with strong blocking from the Oivanen brothers, each with a pair of blocks in the set.

Japan bounced back to take an 8-5 lead at the first TTO in the second set, but the aggressive Oivanens brought Finland back to 9-9. After a Koshikawa ace put Japan back ahead 14-11, Finland’s Sivula brought three spikes and an endline ace to make it a one-point game at 19-18. But with Koshikawa serving strong, Yusuke “Gottsu” Ishijima evened the match at a set apiece with a spike.

The third was a scrappy affair, with Finland grabbing a 10-6 edge as their block still proved effective against the attacking Fukuzawa. But Japan was sparked by great play from libero Takeshi Nagano as well as Gottsu off the bench, eventually going ahead 15-14 when frustrated Finnish coach Tuomas Sammelvuo received a red card. But it was more Gottsu late on, frustrating an attacking Antti Siltala with a block to make it 21-17 and serving well as Japan took the third 25-19 and with it a 2-1 lead.

Fukuzawa kept up the strong serving, dropping a pair of consecutive aces on Finland early, helping his side up 8-5. Great attacking from Koshikawa kept them ahead, with Kota Yamamura posting an emphatic block (his third) to make it 16-11 for Japan. But Finland showed great heart coming back late, with spikes from Jukka Lehtonen and Niklas Seppänen bringing them within one at 21-20. But Fukuzawa’s 24th point would finish it off 25–22, handing the match 3–1 to Japan.

Iran loses World Leage home game to Serbia

Tehran, Iran, June 21, 2013- Serbia claimed 3-2 victory against home team Iran in pool B on Friday (26-24, 25-23,17-25, 14-25 , 18-16).

”We are glad for this win,” said Serbia’s head coach Igor Kolakovic. “The situation was not good for us. We played well in first and second set. Iran changed opposite player and they became good. They had good services they were very well in defense.”

More than 12,000 fans flockd to Azadi Hall in Tehran to watch the team’s first-ever home game of the FIVB World League, in a thrilling five-set match.

“I should congratulate to the spectators,” said Serbia’s head coach Igor Kolakovic. “They created good Atmosphere for home team.”

Serbia showed the upper hand in the beginning of the match, gradually in the first set using the efficient spikes of Atanasijevic and the blocking by Marko, until Iran players got the control of game with a three point lead. Serbia, however, showed more awareness by the end and won the first set 26-24.

The second set was in favor of Iran, who had good spikes and sound blocks and by 8-4 got the first technical time out. Iran continued with weak blocks, falling behind and allowing Serbia to take the second, 25-23.

In third set, Iran kept a lead, but Serbia showed motivation to win Spectators were warmly backing up home team, as Serbia struggled from behind 16-22. With Farhad Ghaemi’s serves and spikes of Mousavi, however, Iran won the set 25-17.

Iran kept its lead in the fourth set, while Serbian players fell behind of home team. Iran was leading and kept it until winning the set 25-14.

Set five proved the most exciting, as Iran saved one point by winning set 3 and 4 through the leadership of the experienced setter Saeed Marouf, extening the match to tiebreak. The tiebreak was controlled by the experience of Serbian players, as they lead 8-6. Iran players showed upper hand and made score tie 8, but Serbia pulled ahead to win the set 18-16.

“We are happy with the win,” said Dragan Stankovic Serbia’s captain. “We suffered a lot of pressure and we made a lot of mistakes.”

Serbia’s best player was Atanasijevic Aleksander, with 23 win points from total of 74 attempts. Iran’s Farhad Ghaemi got 16 win points from total of 52 attempts.

“We lost to the experience of Serbia,” said Saeed Marouf, Iran’s captain. “We took third and fourth sets, and in the tiebreak we were doing equal job. I think all of us are satisfied with our play.”

“We were expecting to win but we lost,” said Iran’s Julio Velasco. “We did good play in two sets in last set we made score tie 16. Our service was not good in first set. We changed Mahmoudi and he did a good job. In every time we learn from Serbia They showed us how to get use from good defense. My players’ fighting spirit of was fantastic until last moment.”

Again, lack of experience made Iran loser of the match! Stadium was full and 12000 fans were just screaming "Iran".

Farhad Ghaemi's serves were like hurricane and could get many points from Serbia! And also the condition of the stadium was against Serbia;However, Serbia got 2 points and Iran got 1 point!

The second match will be on Sunday, 17:00 PM -Iran Time-.
