The Russian national volleyball team won the 1/8 finals at the European Championships. Our team in a not-so-simple match beat Belgium in four sets (25:22, 25:15, 21:25, 25:22). The match lasted 103 minutes.
The first two games were won quite confidently, but then I had to compete and suffer. Belgium, of course, was individually inferior to our team, but overplayed in some segments, took the third set and caused a lot of problems in the fourth. But Russia managed and goes further.
The national team reached the quarter finals, where on September 4 they will play with the winner of the Italy-Slovakia match. The rival of the Russians will be determined later.
The European Championship is held in four cities – Bratislava, Ankara, Budapest and Lodz (Poland). 24 teams take part in the competition.
