Italy, China in different moods heading into second match

Italy celebrates as a dejected China wonders how to stop the Azzurri attack

Verona, Italy, June 13, 2009 - Italy is again on the ascendancy after a well-deserved win against China in the opening game of the 2009 FIVB World League.

Andrea Anastasi's team showed quality and intensity in the straight-sets victory, but the main aim for the Italian coach now is to keep his players’ feet on the ground.

Italian captain Matej Cernic underlined the quality of the Italian team against a Chinese team that still needs to live up to its potential. Both coaches are expecting a tougher second match.
