Argentina’s Juan Barrera (13 points) and Luciano Palonsky (12 points) provided the firepower for the South American side. Ivan Kuznetcov and Stanislav Antonov scored with the same number of points for the Russian side.

Russia played a solid game at the start but crashed in the succeeding sets to their share of errors in attack. They were setting up their offence with good tempo, but the hitters ended up wth misfires. They also gave away much points from the service line. Meanwhile, Argentina played good defence. They stood by the net convert with 12 block points, and they persisted with good floor defence to address the opponents’ powerful spikes.
