Fascinating face off in Vila do Conde

June 10, 2005 – Having both recorded outstanding results in the 2005 World League Intercontinental Round thus far, Portugal and Venezuela shape up against each other in round three this weekend in what promises to be an exceptional Pool A contest.

Portugal recorded an historic victory over Brazil last weekend and with their confidence flying high, they will be a daunting opponent to anyone, let alone Venezuela, who after taking three impressive sets off Brazil in round one, collected two comfortable victories over Japan last weekend.

Luis Diaz and Harry Gomez have been in outstanding form for Venezuela while skipper Joao José and Hugo Gasper have been the backbone behind a spirited Portuguese outfit, who are a shadow of their former selves under new coach Orlando Samuels.

First match is on Saturday at 15:00 GMT.
