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 captain of the volleyball Uralochka Ksenia Parubets scored 17 points in this match. She performed well in several key attacks, scoring important goals.

The European Championship is held in four cities – Bratislava, Ankara, Budapest and Lodz (Poland). 24 teams take part in the competition.
