Argentina with confidence waits for Serbia

Argentina and Serbia playing in Beograd

After the outstanding victory over Korea on Sunday at Luna Park Stadium in the city of Buenos Aires, Formosa is ready to welcome the Argentine Men and the Serbian Men teams on the fifth weekend of the Intercontinental Round of the 2009 FIVB World League. 

 

Argentina played already four matches vs. Korea, two victories 3-0 and 3-2 and two defeats 2-3, two matches vs. France and two vs. Serbia, winning one vs. each as visiting team and now plays the last three weekends of the first phase at home.  Argentina feels fine with all the team without any injury and standing second on Pool B will try to qualify for the Final Round as Serbia, as host team is already among the six teams to play it.

 

The big question is what players of Serbia will be in the field, as several of the legendary and experienced players due to the long trip to South American, decided the coach not to bring them to Argentina.

 

Both teams are on their way to Formosa and the official Press Conference will take place on Wednesday, noon time, at the Stadium where the matches will take place Friday and Saturday, themselves.

 

It is the first time that the Argentine National Men Team plays in Formosa even though the city and its surroundings love Volleyball.  In the Argentine National A1 Men Teams League the team of La Unión of Formosa with Milinkovic and Elgueta play in it, putting the local team frenetic – moreover when its team qualified for the final of last season’s series.
