France get ready to welcome Cuba

Antonin Rouzier returns for France after missing his country's two matches against Korea
Tours, France, June 8, 2011 - France will be looking to clinch their first victory in the 2011 FIVB Volleyball World League after four straight losses as they welcome Cuba to Tours on Thursday.

Back from Korea following two 3-1 defeats, the French need to convince their fans that they can perform this summer and at the European Championships. A win over Cuba, who despite three losses remain a strong team, will help boost confidence.

Both teams arrived in Tours yesterday to begin training at the Palais des Sports Robert Grenon, the famous venue where local club Tours VB play.

Due to a sprained ankle Xavier Kapfer will be out for a couple of weeks but Antonin Rouzier and Jean-Fran├žois Exiga return to the side.
