Belgium begin to regroup with straight-set win over Egypt


Resistencia, Argentina, August 19, 2015 - On the lower portion of the tournament, Belgium were able to smile again with an improving 3-0 (28-26, 25-21, 25-19) over Egypt, both teams playing to reach the 17th place of the final ranking.

Belgium had some suffering on the opening set, but two players came from the bench to solve all the problems and drive the team to the win - Bjarne Van de Velde topped all scorers with 19 points and Ruben Duwaerts became an effective option on the offense.

Onwards, both teams will deal with Chinese Taipei and Puerto Rico, on this round robin pool to decide places from 17 to 20.
