Izmir, Turkey, August 22, 2013- Explosive Canada tore through Tunisia's defence to stun African champions 3-1 (25-15, 25-15, 27-29, 25-18) in their Pool C encounter of the FIVB Men's U21 World Championship at Ataturk Hall in Izmir, Turkey on Thursday. 

 Scoring 12 aces against only 2 for Tunisia, Canada used their razor sharp services to disturb the Tunisian defence and stop their attacking strategy. Canada also dominate the blocking activity at the net winning 12 stuff blocks against only 4 for the Tunisians and these technical statistics made the difference and settled the situation for the winners.

 Canada's attacker Timothy Stephen was his team best scorer with 15 points followed by Robert Bradley who scored 14 points. From the Tunisian side Both Adam Oueslati and Elyes Garfi contributed 14 points for their team.

 Canada overwhelmed the net action in the first and second sets through their strong service and proper building up of the attacks through the skillful setter and team captain Milan Nikic as they succeeded to win widely 25-15 in each set.

 When the viewers expected straight sets win, the Tunisian team rebounded and improved their defence and increased their fighting power to win the third set after good performance led by Oueslati and Garfi 29-27.

 Again Canada regained the rhythm and started again to improve the block in their way to win the fourth set 25-18 and the match 3-1
