Match Descriptive

Russia beat Cuba 3-0 (25-18, 25-17, 25-18) - duration 1:04
27-Jul, start time: 18:20, end time: 19:24 - Attendance: 6,000
RUS beat CUBA 3-0 by their superior blockings.
RUS easily won the 1st set with distant points because CUB wasn't enough familiar with Russian's "2nd Floor" attacks at the beginning. The first 5 points for each team in the 2nd set were taken in turn when CUB was gradually getting into the situation. RUS then organized a 3-points strategy, which extended their points and firmed their leading position within that set, even though CUB was also close to RUS from time to time. But CUB simply couldn't break through Russian's tough blocking. No more no less, no surprise either, RUS took this match within 3 sets.
