Despite of the forecast the match immediately was on the Chinese side, Chineses that always had much more rhythm and concentration. These are the people at the coaches disposal: Italy, Vermiglio-Fei, Tencati-Gravina, Casoli-Giani, China: He Jong-Lu Fei, Wang-Zhen, Shen-Shin. From the very first balls on it's clear that this might be the right chance for the Chinese team. Italians can never find its rhythm in spite of the Asian team that always gets straight to the point. Every set is the copy of the previous one: China always with the highest score and Italy following but without giving the impression to have the concentration and the energy they needed. Coach Anastasi tries some changes but the the score always gifts China, China that is always winning and eventually beats Italy.
