The volleyball World cup has started, but no one has yet to notice the top notch teams playing at Japan. I felt obliged to give a small insight to the tournament seeing that my own national team, Egypt, is a participant of the event as well.

The African champions are continuing their losing streak today when they lost 3-2 to Japan, the host country of the 10th FIVB Men's Volleyball world cup.

The Japanese squad had it coming in the first set, but the Egyptians fought back vigorously to turn the tides to their favour, winning 2 sets. 4th Set was the stage for a dramatic battle for points, with Egypt in the lead.

Egypt's defenses soon faltered to the Japanese servers, Koshikawa Yu and Ishijima Yusuke, losing the 4th set by 2 points. Japan is set to play against Puerto Rico while Egypt heads to play against the undefeated Russia.
