Bulgaria make it two from two in Korea

Bulgaria cheer following their second win of the weekend over Korea in the World League

Incheon, Korea, June 13, 2010 - Bulgaria ended their second weekend of FIVB World League action with another win over Korea in Incheon, recording a 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22) victory over the hosts.

Bulgaria now have two wins from four games after going down to Brazil twice last weekend as Korea are yet to score a victory in this year's competition.

Bulgaria's power and height were again an issue for the Koreans, and despite promising rookie Park, Jun-Bum's inclusion in the side, Korea couldn't overcome the European side in the first set.

Bulgaria made a total of 13 errors in the second but Korea struggled to take advantage of them and eight blocking points from the visitors meant they went 2-0 up.

Korea began to find some momentum in the third set and led 5-0 before Bulgaria pounced back to take the match.

"Today, we have many difficulties especially our receive," Bulgaria coach Prandi Silvano said. "Korea's serve was good. They improved a lot compared to yesterday's match."

Korea now face the daunting task of an away match against Brazil as Bulgaria compete in their final away weekend of the Intercontinental round travelling to the Netherlands
