Easy task for the U.S. team

Duel above the net
Was perfectly made after the hard task against Algeria on Tuesday, when the U.S. team only after five sets victory, it ended in the second match in pool H for the team by coach Andy Read much easier against Egypt.

Already in the first set of the superiority of the U.S. in all areas was clear. Egypt get only eight points of attack and one per service. The U.S. players were much better placed on this day: sixteen points in the attack, four aces and two points per block, so in 23 minutes after they had the set in their account. By 25-21 they won the set.

Similarly, the duel went in the second set. Egypt seemed more distracted and showed too little resistance. This time, the record in terms of attack was even more clearly: 16 again for the U.S., only six of Egypt's attacker. After 22 minutes the U.S. boys also had this set (25-16) chosen for themselves.

That Egypt will have to wait even after the third set further to his first victory at the World Championship, was caused by a still much better motivated US-Team in set three. In addition to 14 points of attack, and four per block now added another three by aces. The team of Andy Read finished the set with 25-18. Symptomatic of the last rally: service Egypt, the receive of the U.S. boys brings the ball right back into the field of the Egyptians and then the ball falls to the ground.
