Great game aganist Brazil

Favourites Brazil recovered from a first-set shock to defeat Cuba 3-1 in the opening Pool B match as the defending champions turned in a 21-25, 25-19, 25-15, 25-22 victory. France overcame some stubborn resistance from Greece to score a 3-1 win in their first match. The French dropped the third set before clinching a 25-22, 25-22, 22-25, 25-17 victory at Fukuoka’s Marine Messe stadium. France’s captain Stephane Antiga was pleased with the win, especially given the short amount of time the team had to prepare before the World Championship. “The first match is always very difficult,” he said. “We were very nervous and didn't have a lot of time to prepare, only two weeks. We are very happy with this victory because against Greece the past two times we lost so it's nice to get back at them and a nice start to the competition.”
