In China, the Italians win the first part, then Iran catches up and wins the match
ITALY-IRAN 1-3 (25-20, 23-25, 23-25, 23-25)
The Italian national team is at its best with Antonov’s experience and Nelli’s exuberance who make the difference.
The young Lavia suffers the pressure and is not able to affect with the Iranian joke that is always looking for him but the Blues close 25-20.
In the 2nd part, the domination of Italy is confirmed but at 20, the light in the blue house is turned off and suffers some walls too much and is replaced.
In the 3rd set space in Cavuto for Lavia, Iran properly rides the vein of the “Monza” Ghafour (20 points) and reaches up to 13-11. Guizzo from Italy that goes back to 17-15 but a doubtful video check and a couple of Antonov errors give new impetus to the Iranians who lead to 2-1.
In the 4th set the CT. blue inserts Polo for Russo and Candellaro for Anzani but the outcome does not change. Italy started well (4-1) but then fell to the distance and raised the white flag for the first k.o. of the tournament.
