To the Volleyball Nations League, where Iran have powered past the hosts, Italy, 3 sets to 1.
Coming on the back of 2 consecutive victories over the Netherlands and Canada, Team Melli showed great confidence to take the first 2 sets 26-24 and 29-27. Vladimir Aleknos men then seemed to be losing grip, when they handed the 3rd set 25-21, but they came out firing in the 4th, to seal the deal with a 25-22 win. Saber Kazemi continued to impress for Iran as he led the scoring with 24 points. Iran will next meet Bulgaria on Saturday.
