Germany for the payback time

Germany will try to make things work better in the second game against Cuba.
Havana, Cuba, June 11, 2010.- After the defeat by 0-3 vs. Cuba (24-26, 18-25, 19-25) in the first match at Ciudad Deportiva Coliseum, home of the 2010 FIVB World League in Havana, the German team will try to obtain its recovery on Saturday at 20:40 pm with a victory that ties them up with the Cubans in the qualifying round.

German coach Raúl Lozano said on Friday that Cuba played a monologue in the first match, a situation his team will try to revert today. Germany had a tight struggle with the cubans in the first set, but them collapsed and gave way easily in the rest of the match.

On the other hand, Cuba showed excellent fitness and was able to get their block to an effective level, a parameter that helped a lot against Germany with 14 points.

What the Germans will probably not do is overestimate his opponent again, a point that cost them a lot in the first game. With the victory on Friday Cuba now has a balance of 10-3 wins-loses against the German national team.
