Match Descriptive

Russia beat Egypt 3-0 (25-12, 25-16, 25-11) - duration 1:03
09-Aug, start time: 12:30, end time: 13:33 - Attendance: 150
Russia's Undisputed Victory
The Russian team showed no mercy to Egypt and reached for its first victory without any problems. Initially the Egyptians tried to stay close with points but Russia quickly gained a safe advantage and did not give it away until the final whistle. At the beginning of the second set the Russians won seven points in a row before Egypt did its first and it was almost the same in the third part. The basic difference between those two teams lies in a height average, which is 186 for Russia (the tallest team of the tournament) and only 175 in case of Egypt.
