Brazilian volleyball reign continues
On Sunday, it was case of old guard versus pretenders to the throne in Rome, but the vastly experienced Samba Boys were not about to let their dominance slide with a treble at stake.
Bernardo Rezende’s men took the first and second set with some ease, with youngest squad in the tournament – Cuba – being unable to find any real rhythm throughout.
The reigning champions took full advantage, securing the 2010 World Championships with a 25-22, 25-14, 25-22 scoreline.
Brazil are now up there with the great Italian teams of the ’90s, who also won three in a row.
