After three defeats in the first phase, and a debacle in the opening match for 9th-16th place from the Turks (1:3), which in the Czech Republic world forum, our youth team finally won two in a row victory.

In four games the team of coaches Nikolai and Anatoly Pasina Anushika took over by the Japanese and three to beat the Moroccans. In the group N Ukrainian volleyball players took second place and will now meet tomorrow in the match for 9-12 places with the team of Italy.

Behind the Japanese second technical timeout of the first set 14:16, our coaches unsuccessfully instead of the current diagonalise Denis Kovalyov to this position released the Central locking by Vladimir Ostapenko. And although in his new role he initially was, figuratively speaking, uncomfortable, he broke out and brought the team a Baker’s dozen points.

In the first game on the pitch Andrey Rogozhin Ukrainians caught up with rivals (20:20) and, when the Japanese took the lead again (22:21), the attacks of Timothy Poluyan and Oleg’s Carpentry, a good block of the binder Alexei Golovine set was won.

The second batch actually was in our favor, what particularly tried to attack Carpenter and Ostapenko, asavie feed Poluyan and Rogozhin. Then in the third set, the Ukrainians slowed down, and paid for that. And in the fourth, once again taking himself in hand, brought the match to the bitter end.

In the game with the Japanese, our team clearly outclassed the opponents in all elements of volleyball, what more than compensated for those quite numerous mistakes because of the risk of on the innings and attack.

Very difficult, despite the “dry” victory for the matches, had success in the last night match with the national team of Morocco, where fortune favored the Ukrainians in all endings. They attack (there are especially good Ostapenko) and the block (Rogozhin) again with a large point advantage beat the rival. And that gave the Moroccans in asuom terms of service on the part of mistakes, and it this time became a kind of byword…
