Argentina trained this Friday morning at Wroclaw venue

Wroclaw, Poland, September 5, 2014 - The Argentine Seniors' trained once more prior to one of the most important matches of Pool A of the World Championship Poland 2014. Tomorrow Saturday at 8.00 Argentine time live broadcast by Fox Sports the team coached by Julio Velasco will face one of the best teams of this season's FIVB World League, Australia and coached by another Argentine Coach, Jon Uriarte.

At the Centennial Hall, where Argentina played all its matches they trained prior to watching a Video at 20.00 to see the rival playing. The match is very important to settle the ranking for the second round of the premier international 2014 season taking into consideration not only the points of this round but of the next one (the new formula adds them).

No doubt it will be a very fought match. Australia will try to reach Argentina's points, 6 in a 2-1 win-loss record while Australia stands 1-2.

Of course, the special seasoning that will face two Argentine coaches and father (John coaching Australia) and son (Nicolas as starting line-up setter. John coached Australia before participating of two World Championships and the Olympic Games, in all facing Argentina and even opening the 2002 competition in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

For Jon, who also has his father (Nicolas grandfather) watching in Wroclaw the World Championship his relationship with National Teams is outstanding. At the World Champ 2002 it was "his" Australia facing Argentina; then, at the first Olympic Games for Nicolas, ten years later, they faced each other in London 2012 in the premier World competition and now, this match with Nicolas as starting line-up setter and Jon in a new cycle with Australia.

Jon Uriarte expresses himself: "I enjoy it a lot. I have the luck that in this life volleyball has been much more than just a job, it has been the tool to make me happy, to be able to express myself. I believe Nicolas is enjoying the same. I lived volleyball since he was born and then he chose it and for a father to see his son so happy is the most important and beautiful fact in life. Then, to be at the main volleyball party of the World together is a huge life celebration, each one putting the most of oneself. I enjoy it as a present of my life" while for Nicolas: "It is always very nice even though it seems somehow strange". The Argentine setter, in his first season complete as starting line-up players adds: "Truly it is very nice to feel him this way, to see him that he is doing the right things. Australia has been a great part of my life, I started there playing volleyball so I remember it with my heart. We try to avoid serious facts prior to the matches like this one because each one is in a different place. It is a very important match for us. To maintain things right is the clue. To keep our minds very concentrated to give the utmost of each one of us is the main fact".
