A quarterfinal entry for Brazil with their fifth victory

Algeria Louiza Bayou spikes against the Brazilian block

Brno, Czech Republic, June 26, 2013 – Brazil easily got rid of Algeria (3-0: 25-10, 25-11, 25-13) to qualify for quarterfinal. This was the last match played in Vodova for the round of 16 on Wednesday. Brazil coach Luizomar De Moura decided to test the strength of his athletes usually on the bench: obviously, apart from the libero Dani Guimaraes Terra, the only player who could act as a libero.

Cheered by their teammates from the substitution corner, the Brazilians did not show any anxiety facing the Africans, who were not able to oppose enough resistance to the inspired volleyball of the South Americans. After 1 hour and 3 minutes of rallies the referee Bahamas referee Lanza Miller whistled the last point for Brazil, marking their fifth victory in a arrow. Algeria Merwa Dallal Achour had 6 points to become the best scorer of her team, while a stronger echo came from the Brazilian courtside with Domingas Soares Araujo having a personal score of 19 points.
