Serbia expecting second victory over China

Vlado Petkovic and Marko Podrascanin in action in the first match Serbia vs. China in Nis

Belgrade, Serbia, June 5, 2010 - Serbia are looking for their second triumph over China on Sunday in the FIVB 2010 World League as they prepare for their second match.


"We played really a good quality match in Nis, especially as we entered into it with great caution as it is quite difficult to play against teams from Asia," Vlado Petkovic, setter of the Serbian team said. "I did expect them to be stronger and more complex in their game, so Belgrade will be another chance to win and I do hope we’ll succeed. We will prepare as much as we can and hope to win another match in Pionir. I am happy that we played like this and this is the team which will play the whole World League which means, all the way into the Final Six, as our ambition is to go to Argentina."


"The result of the first match shows something that was not happening on the court," Marko Podrascanin, blocker of the Serbian team said. "We had the match in our hands from the beginning to the end, but they are a serious opponents. That is something we shall see in the next two days and we’ll have to be ready for that. Nevertheless, this victory was very important for us. This was the first game that we played as a renewed team. Each point will count and another victory will certainly boost our enthusiasm. That’s why I would like to invite the spectators in Belgrade to come in great  numbers and support us in our efforts."


The two meet again on Sunday at 8:15pm local time in Belgrade.
