We are carrying Brazil's hopes after football failure, says Lucarelli

Brazil are under pressure to win, says Lucarelli
Florence, Italy, July 17, 2014 – Brazilian spiker Ricardo Lucarelli says the team are feeling confident after the match against Russia, but are feeling the pressure to make Brazil winners again after their poor performance in the football World Cup. 

He said: “Matches against Russia are always very very tough but today we won. After today's win, we have more confidence, and that is the key to doing well.”

“We were watching the football World Cup recently and we could not help Brazil win. But that puts more pressure on Brazil's volleyball players, everyone is looking for us now to win for Brazil.”
