On Thursday, Brazil will play Argentina for a chance to advance to the quarterfinals. The Argentinians won 3-0 over Serbia earlier on Tuesday to advance to the semifinals.

With top player Ricardo Lucarelli out due to illness, Brazil nevertheless managed to defeat Iran. The decisive factor was Brazil’s 41 to Iran’s 32 advantage in offensive points.

Actually, Leal was the only player to score in double figures. The opening set ended on his spike at 25-17. After that, at 25-22 in the second set, he hit a winning pipe shot. The 34-year-old outside hitter, who was born in Cuba but raised in the United States, killed the overpass to give Brazil a 20-19 lead in the last set. Leal scored 19 points on attacks, with a 63% success rate. After Iran had taken back the lead for a short while with to an ace by his opponent Saber Kazemi, 24–22, it was Leal who served up the game-winning kill block at 24–23.

Brazil VS Iran

Bruno Rezende, the team’s setter and captain, entered the match as a substitute and promptly won the point with a superbly put ace. His serve was first ruled out, but after an appeal from Brazil, it was determined that the ball had had just touched the outside edge of the service box.

Brazil served up seven aces throughout the encounter. An off-the-net kill by first setter Fernando Kreling sealed the opening set 22-15. Lucas Saatkamp, an experienced middle blocker, contributed two crucial points, at 13-10 and 22-15 in the second set, respectively. Flavio Gualberto, who plays on the other side of the court, struck an ace to cut Iran’s advantage to 6-5 in the third set, while Rodrigo Leao, who plays in the outfield, won a handful of points by serving in the first two sets. The last three players each scored eight points, with Flavio finishing with the most blocks (3).

“I am ecstatic! “I am really happy with what we are accomplishing,” Fernando stated after the game. To paraphrase, “It was not simple. Those Iranian teenagers gave us a good fight. They found the first set to be a little off-putting. Perhaps they were apprehensive, but in fairness, the game was challenging. Now we may relax, learn a lot about Argentina, and take baby steps toward actual practice.

Despite outstanding efforts from outside hitter Javad Manavi and middle blocker Amir Hossein Toukhteh, the Iranian team was not competitive enough in the first set. The Asian team, though, cranked up the pace in the second and third sets and gave Brazil a run for their money.

It was clear that having reinforcements opposite Amin Esmaeilnezhad and, more importantly, outside Amirhossein Esfandiar was crucial to Iran’s successful defense. Amin, who came in as the second set’s starting player, quickly hit an ace to cut Brazil’s advantage to 6-5 and subsequently scored two more attack points to bring his team closer. Esfandiar sparked a third-set Iranian comeback with eight points, including two kill blocks and an ace.
