27th Summer Universiade in Kazan,

July 6-17 2013

Volleyball. Preview of competition day

The volleyball matches continue on July 10 at the 27th World University Games in Kazan.

Today’s competition will only feature the men’s teams. Of course, the match to watch out for will be Team Russia against Team USA, which will take place at the Saint Petersburg Volleyball Centre. Although, the US team did not have a great start. They faced crushing defeat at the hands of the Estonians, then the Czech Republic, so the Americans will be attempting to spite the tournament hosts as a last ditch effort. Russia, on the hand, has practically guaranteed itself a win in their group, so they will be able to enjoy the match. 

Another interesting rivalry is set to unfold at the end of the day. The powerful teams of Belarus and Korea will be pitted against each other.
