Damn, that 5th set loss to Japan is so crucial.
I must say that 5 set win yesterday is to be blamed. They played really bad against Italy. Russia could have won that game in 3 or 4 sets but their unforced errors were all over the place. Kliuka has been the key player for the team. When he plays bad the team always gets defeated.
I just want them to lose this last game against Brazil as a consolation. Losing to Brazil only means they really don't deserve a spot to Final 4.
