France prepare to host on fire Cuba

June 10, 2005 – France’s match against Cuba in this week’s third round of the 2005 World League Intercontinental Round is arguably the match of the round in Pool B with victory imperative for both sides.

The young and exuberant Cuban team have their tails up with three wins and one solitary defeat after two rounds, while France are desperate to record at least one victory this weekend to keep them in touch with the pool leaders.

Last week’s sharing of their two matches at home against Bulgaria was a little disappointing for the Tri colours in that it handed the Eastern Europeans their first win of the tournament. But with Hubert Henno, arguably one of the best liberos in the world, making his return and new captain Stéphane Antiga starting to blossom in the role, France will fancy their chances against their Central American opponents.

With the winner of the pool advancing through to the final round, a 2-0 score line to either side would be a great fillip with only three more rounds remaining after this weekend.
