Yesterday matches in Pool B of FIVB Women’s WCH gave us a lot of good emotions as we have witnessed some great volleyball rallies. Brazil and Serbia didn’t mislead their fans after scoring straight victories. The Turkish supporters might be a bit disappointed after their team lost vs. Bulgaria.

Zoran Terzic, head coach of Serbia: “ I think that the team of Cameroon has a potential, they surprised me and to me they just have to work on some aspects in order to improve. We played at 100% and now we have to think about our next games”.
