Two of the strongest teams in the world clashed yesterday at Earls Court. The match between BRAZIL and RUSSIA was so exciting. Of course because there is Ekaterina Gamova. The MVP in the World Champ is always an exciting to see playing inside the court. There is Sheilla Castro, the 2008 Beijing MVP from Brazil.

I was expecting this match to be a tough one. Yes,Virginia it was really,really tough. Because the match extended into 5 sets.

Too bad for the Russians because they let the Brazilians made their run until the deciding set. OmyG!Β  The ball is round. Yes it is really,really round!

The Russians won two sets and took the advantage but the Brazilians didn’t stop to tie in the 4th set.

Finally, the match ended 3-2, (24-26,25-22,19-25,25-22,21-19) in favor of Brazil. It was so disappointing for the Russians since they led the rank in the elimination round under Pool A. Brazil who took the 4th spot in the elimination round under Pool B really survived and outdueled the Russians. Seriously, the Russians put the Brazilians in 4 match points but the back row attacks from the Brazilians sealed the exciting match before thousands of volleyball fans.
