Brazil's Strenuous Victory
The opening set commenced with a predictable Brazil's advantage but as the game went on Thailand built up its strength amazingly to reach for a lead, 18:16. The Brazilians were forced to use all of their resources to overcome the Asians' resistance and finish the set victorious, 25:20. In the second part Brazil's dominance stayed endangered as well, as the ambitious players from Thailand caught the lead halfway and maintained it until the final whistle, overcoming the mighty Latin Americans 25:21. The Brazilian team hit back and had a power over the third part, winning 25:21. The fourth and last set stayed very balanced until the very end. Thailand faced the chance to extend the match serving for a set but Brazil broke the Asians' resistance and won the final part 28:26.
