Iran claim the fifth place with a 3-1 victory over Turkey


Iran complete their World Championship campaign in style

Ankara, Turkey, September 1, 2013 – Iran finished the FIVB Volleyball Men's U21 World Championship in Turkey in the prestigious fifth place. They recovered from a set down to achieve a 3-1 (19-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-18) victory over the home team of Turkey in front of the many noisy supporters of both teams at Baskent Volleyball Hall.

 

Led by Metin Toy, the Turkish offense made the difference in the first set, as the team’s opposite player scored 6 spiking points, including the won that finished it off at 25-19.  The Iranians were quick to respond as they continued their successful blocking and took advantage of Turkey’s abundant errors to win the second set by 25-21.  The powerful attacking performance by the Asian team gave them the advantage in the third set.  Milad Ebadipour Ghara and Javad Hosseinabadi were unstoppable at the net as middle blocker Zarchoub Fallah was the one who put the ball on the floor for the final 25-18.  Turkey tried to get their powerful offence back into rhythm, but simultaneously committed plenty of mistakes to let the fifth place slide away to Iran after another convincing 25-18 in the fourth and final set.

 

Milad Ebadipour Ghara tallied 19 points to top the scorers’ chart of the match.  Baturalp Burak Gungor and Metin Toy were the best scorers for Turkey with 14 points each.
