Team USA bag bronze
Matthew Anderson, who scored a match-high 17 points, said "We know they have some good servers. So we had to keep focus the entire match. We came back after the first set and kept the throttle down.”
Coach John Speraw said: “We’ve had Aaron Russell and Garrett Muagututia play every game in this long tournament. Especially after getting Thomas Jaeschke injured in our match against Poland, it was a tough challenge for these two guys to really play on and deliver. Given this situation we had to face, it’s quite nice to be able to reach the podium.”
Russia 3-0 Tunisia
Russia led on all scoring fronts, dominating heavily with their block-defence. The European side scored off a total of 11 deflections in the match. The Russians played well in their reception and passing, which allowed them to comfortably set up on attack.
Sammelvuo relied on a good mix of players, with Fedor Voronkov and Yaroslav Podlesnykh on attack, and Ivan Iakovlev in the middle.

Kara Mosly said: “This was the final match of my long career - 27 years. It is not easy. I did not want to think about that during the match. I wanted to feel I would continue playing tomorrow. I am emotionally overwhelmed and it is tough to reconcile that it is all over.”
