Volleyroos put up spirited fight Italy
The Australian Volleyroos delivered spirited fight against Italy but unfortunately went down in three sets (20-25, 22-25, 14-25).
Head Coach Marcos Miranda was impressed with the young team’s spirit and says the team will look ahead to their next block of matches.
“We were very confident going into this match, however the Italian team had a very strong blocking game and we were not able to break their offensive system which was the point of imbalance of the game.
“Our young players showed a lot of spirit today in their first VNL tournament, which is a positive to take away from the game today.
“We will keep trying to do our best, and will rest and recover our players for the next upcoming block of matches against Iran, Slovenia and Brazil”
The Volleyroos return to the court on Tuesday 15 June at 8pm AEST.
