Serbia see of China in Pool B clash

Serbia discuss tactics as they beat hosts China on Saturday to remain top of Pool B
Luohe, China, June 26 2010 - Serbia came back from a set down to beat China 3-1 (23- 25, 25-22, 25-16, 25-16) in their 2010 FIVB World League Pool B match on Saturday in Luohe to extend their lead at the top of the group.

China started well to excite the home fans and took the first set in a tight 25-23 battle. Serbia were made to pay for their mistakes as the home side used its fluent attack to take the early lead.

Serbia developed their attacking game in the second to narrowly see out the hosts 25-22 before cracks in the Chinese block started to form. Serbia pounced on the mistakes to easily see out the match, winning the final two sets 25-16.

Chen Ping of China and Kovacevic Nikola of Serbia topped the scores with 18 points each.

"We came here to win these two games," Serbia captain Dragan Stankovic said following the match. "It was important for us to be first in our group. I knew the first game was always difficult and today’s match proved this."

The two sides will meet again on Sunday at 4.10pm local time.
