In this Friday’s match, Pointer Lucarelli stood out and was the top scorer in the match with 20 hits. Opposite Allen also scored well with 16 hits.
The match-opening setter Cachopa commented on the result and highlighted the good performance of the green and yellow groups. “We put the Iran team under pressure all the time. He had to increase the risk on the service and he did so for a good portion of the time. Our pace and amount of play was fundamental in many moments of the match to get these three very important points”, said Kachopa.
Brazil is fighting for an unprecedented title. In the last edition of the championship in 2019, the Brazilian had finished fourth.
