The Bulgarian volleyball team reaches the semi-finals

Bulgaria defeated the Netherlands with 3:1 (25:15, 26:24, 21:25, 28:26) in the second game of the F group of Eurovolley 09 in Turkey. This is the fifth consecutive victory for the team of Silvano Prandi, which practically qualifies Bulgaria to the semi-finals of Euro 09 in Izmir.

The result of the game with the other undefeated team so far – Russia – today is irrelevant. Bulgaria has already secured their place in the semi-finals of the tournament.
