Brazil tie series in the Netherlands

The Brazilian men's team has leveled their three-match friendly series against the Netherlands at 1-1 after winning the second match 3-0 in Almere, Holland on Friday. The 25-15, 25-22, 25-23 result in favour of the World Champions reversed Thursday 2-3 loss in the opening match. The young Netherlands side battled to overcome the loss of some crucial players to injury in the opening match and with Brazil starting lineup consisting of Marcelinho, André Birth, Murilo, Roberto, Rodrigão and Renato Felizardo, the South Americans proved too strong. The third match in the series is on Saturday in Eindhoven before Brazil travel to Spain, for a two-match friendly series on May 5-6 and the Netherlands visit Belgium for two matches on May 6-7.
