Russia Took Pains To Win Over Thailand
Russia desired to beat Thailand as fast as it is possible but fail to obtain that goal as the Asian team showed no respect to one of the volleyball superpowers. In the opening set the Russians' advantage was rather undisputable but since the second part Thailand began to resist much stronger. Russia had to use all of its power to take a 2:0 lead. The game became even more interesting when the pleyers from Thailand grabbed the control in their hands and surprisingly won the third set, after the second setball. But they lost almost all of their strength and began to make too many errors in reception and digging. Russia used it perfectly winning the fourth set without major problems.
