After Mouilleron-Le-Captif , Paris match is clue

Paris, France, June 28, 2014 - After the outstanding victory of the Argentine Seniors' Men Team on Friday overcoming France in Mouilleron-Le-Captif on the 11th match of the Intercontinental Round of the FIVB World League 2014, the last match to take place this Sunday at 16.00 local time (16.00 Argentine time) in the city of Paris will settle the winner of Pool D and its qualy for the Final Four in Sydney, Australia.

France leads the Pool by 2 points and therefore, even losing by tie-break would be the winner of the Pool as they would add 1 more point while Argentina would add only 2. If Argentina wins 3-0 or 3-1 as they would add 3 points meaning the top place of the Pool. There is no way that both teams could end with the same points.

In case of winning, Argentina would level its best campaign at all participations of the Intercontinental Round of the FIVB World League, in the year 2011 with a record of win-loss 9-3 and also the qualification for the Final Four. Argentina in this edition won 8 matches, seven of which are consecutive and the last ones, starting v Japan (2) in Argentina followed away v Japan (2), v Germany (2) and on Friday v France (1).

Even though the goal is very demanding, Argentina just overcame France for the first time in this season, without questioning on the first set and coming from behind to win the tie-breaker set and therefore all players are very motivated and confident.

This last match will be live broadcast by TyC Sports and can be watched at the alternative channels 630 - DIRECTV or 90 - Cablevision and also at YouTube via web that will update its broadcasting just before the start of the match (PRESS HERE) .
