The hardest work is yet to be done by France

 



Brest, France, July 4, 2015 - France celebrate the remaining winning strike after victory over Korea 3-1 (23-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-15), but the French are looking forward to their next big step in the 2015 World League - Group 2 Final Four in Varna, Bulgaria. Team France will meet Bulgaria, Argentina and Belgium to compete for the spot in the Final Six in Rio de Janeiro. It will be their second Final Four - in the 2014 World League France lost to Australia. Kevin Le Roux emphasizes that the hardest work is ahead of his team. Jenia Grebennikov, Libero of team France: "It was great playing in Brest. I was born here, so I saw many of my friends in the audience. Korea had a better start than us but we managed to find our efficiency and after our win in the second set, they lost their rhythm. Our sub players did a very good job and this is a positive and important sign before for the next round as we are going to need everybody in their best shape.We have achieved our first goal but the most important one is to go to Rio." Kevin Leroux, Middle Blocker of team France: "Of course, we are happy with the 12th victory because it is a great way o close the Intercontinental Round, but the hardest work is yet to be done as we are only focused on Rio." TrĂ©vor Clevenot, outside hitter of team France: "I have had a great moment, coach Laurent Tillie had warned us before the game that he was going to make a few changes in the line-up, so I had time to prepare myself. It was my first match the World League and I felt a little bit of fear. But with all these guys who push me forward and tell me that it is going to be fine, it helped me a lot.".
