Match Descriptive

Yugoslavia beat Kazakhstan 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-15) - duration 1:05
30-Sep, start time: 14:10, end time: 15:15 - Attendance: 4,200
Yugoslavia knockout Kasajistan
From the beginning, Yugoslavia showed its Olympic Champion quality and reached with points difference both technical time out, 8-5 and 16-11. There was little for Kasajistan to do before Milijkovic's spikes, 6 points, and against the blocking planned by Yugoslavia, which added 5 points this way.

Again, Yugoslavia was the one who won both technical time out on the second set, 8-4 and 16-7. This time the biggest Yugoslavian hitter Boskan Slobodan (4 points) who, together with the good digging of the balls, brightened the European team.

Kasajistan had very little to do on the third set. The first partials were once again won by the Europeans, 8-0 and 16-9. The experience of Yugoslavian Andrija Geric and Mijilkovic, who scored 3 and 2 points each, together with the good blocking work, which scored 5 points, were too much for this World Championship's debutant. Now Yugoslavia, classified for the next round, waits for their game against Japan tomorrow.
