Match quicked only 5 quarters of an hour. Argentina made numerous mistakes, while Chinese players played their game patiently. China was better in all elements. Lang Ping has strong and balanced roster. No matter who is playing, result is always win. She will have problem with choosing starting line-up for Final Six or Asian Championships. Someone from wing-spikers like Wang, Zhu, Hui, Yin, Zhang, Zeng will have to stay on bench or even won’t appear there. The same “headache” Chinese coach has also on middle-blocker or libero position.
