Boskovic blows Japan away
Boskovic , who finished an impressive display with 19 points, was the focal point for Zoran Terzic's Rio 2016 silver medallists along with Brankica Mihajlovic (13 points and two blocks), their strength of spike and general energetic display was simply too hot to handle for a Japanese side who battled hard on what was a testing first outing.
With the reigning European champions locking horns with Asia’a finest, this clash was always going to be entertaining - and so it proved.
Following Brazil’s shock defeat to Germany in the previous match, this was the perfect chance for one of these big guns of the women’s game to take control of Pool Four.
as the Europeans showed just why they’re ranked fourth in the world with some strong attacking intent led by the towering Boskovic, whose spikes were being recorded at over 100 kph.
Terzic, the coach who led that emotional charge to the Olympic final, would have been delighted with his side’s display from both an attacking and defensive standpoint.
Japan, the London 2012 bronze medallists, needed something special now.
Japan will meet Brazil next while the Serbians take on the confident Germans.
