Spain change team to face Russia

Following two 3-2 victories over Poland last weekend Spain have rung the changes for their Pool A clash against World League champions and the number one team on the FIVB world rankings, Russia in Belgorod this weekend. Spanish coach Francisco Hervás has made two changes from the team, which struggled to put away Poland last weekend in Valencia and Castellon in a bid to inject more urgency. Hervás has opted to give 32-year-old Manuel Berenguel his international debut by replacing libero Alexis Valido with the player from Unicaja Almería. Meanwhile, Rubén Antequera, 21, from Belgian club Par-Ky Menem will replace José Antonio Casilla, who is still suffering from a knee injury that kept him out of the week two matches. Center Carlos Carreño setter Jordi Gens and receiver Enrique De la Fuente all won't be in Belgorod due to technical and personal decisions. Spain: Rafael PASCUAL CORTÉS; Gustavo SAUCEDO GARCÍA; Rubén ANTEQUERA FEIXÁ; Alfonso FLORES PEÑA; Luis Pedro SUELA MÉNDEZ; David SÁNCHEZ MORDÓS; Cosme PRENAFETA GARCÍA; Guillermo FALASCA FERNÁNDEZ; José Luis MOLTÓ CARBONELL; Manuel SEVILLANO CANALS; Juan José SALVADOR JIMÉNEZ; Manuel BERENGUEL
