Irã assume quinto lugar com vitória sobre Venezuela




O Irã venceu o play-off para definir a quinta e a sexta colocações no Campeonato Mundial Masculino Sub-23 por 3 a 0 (21-14, 23-21, 21-17) contra a Venezuela, no último dia de competição na Arena Presidente Tancredo Neves.

A partida foi uma repetição do último jogo do Grupo B, quando o Irã também emplacou 3 a 0. O Irã venceu o primeiro set por 21 a 14, com todos os jogadores pontuando.

Os nove pontos obtidos por erros da Venezuela, especialmente no saque, impediram os sul-americanos de ameaçar o Irã, e o oposto Reza Ghara fechou o primeiro set com um ataque fulminante.

O Irã começou bem o segundo set, mas o central Jonathan Quijada ajudou a Venezuela a nivelar o jogo e passar à frente (12-11) no tempo técnico. Com menos erros, os venezuelanos passaram a ameaçar mais o Irã, mas o atacante Mojtaba Mirzajanpour foi difícil de conter nos pontos finais. Assim, os iranianos fecharam o set por 23 a 21.
