LOL Iran the only defeated team after the second day ! Didn't expect that at all the win vs Italy was good (not great, still thinking about Ghafour missing the match point in the 4th set) but today's result was just great against probably the best team of the tournament. they were completely hopeless in first 2 sets but everything has changed when Manavinejad came in. his reception is still poor and he does mistakes here and there but he is the only Iranian OH who can spike in world level. and against better teams like USA you have to take that risk.
I think there is a good chance for medal now but if they play careless (like WL) even Japan can beat them, so it's still a long way to go. today finally we saw the Iran team with the same old fighting spirit
