 Izmir, Turkey, August 26, 2013 – Brazil recovered from last night defeat against France to end their pool D campaign with a straight sets victory over winless Venezuela (25-14, 25-23, 25-13) in Pool D of the FIVB Men's U21 World Championship at Ataturk Hall in Izmir, Turkey on Monday.

 With this win Brazil finished the preliminary round with a win- loss ratio of 2-2 and 8 points to be ranked third and battle it out against 2nd of Pool C USA in the round of 16, while Venezuela dropped to 0-4 and hence they play with the 5th ranked teams in the classification pool for 17 to 20th positions.

Opposite spiker Alan Souza and outside hitter Douglas Souza were the key factors in the victory and finished as match scorer with 14 points each. Venezuela big gun Roberth Abreu was his team scorer with 9 points.

 Brazil dominated the match completely through their sharp spike services which put the Venezuelan team under stress and thus they couldn't build up their attacks.

 Brazil's coach Leo used most of his list throughout the match and used some substitutes trying to rest some key stars after their big effort in the Sunday's match against France. 

 Brazil also dominated the blocking action at the net making a wide difference of 16-2 and this was the key factor in the victory
