Vizag to stage clash of the junior titans
Visakhapatnam, India, August 13, 2005 - Former champions Brazil and Russia will meet on Sunday to decide the winner of the FIVB Men's U21 World Championship. Both teams flexed their mighty muscles with straight-sets victories in the semi-finals on Saturday, and the final looks set to be a classic played in front of a capacity crowd at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium. First, Russia crushed European rivals the Netherlands, and then Brazil blew away Cuba in a Saturday night power show. The Dutch and Cubans must now pick themselves up from these defeats and contest the bronze medal. They have come close, but no cigar.
