Brazil brought the Netherlands' perfect second round record at the FIVB women's World Volleyball Championship to an end. The Dutch had entered the Pool E match with a perfect 7-0 record, and looked on course to extend that run as they took the opening set 25-21. Lonneke Sloetjes led the European side's scoring as she contributed 25 points. But Brazil, led by Tandara Caixeta's match-high 28 points, fought back in the second to level the match. The game swung back and forth between the two teams in the third set, before a deft tap by Celeste Plak ensured the Netherlands edged it 27-25. The fourth set remained close during the opening exchanges, before Brazil opened up a five-point lead at 20-15 and closed out the set through back-to-back spikes from Fernanda Rodrigues and Caixeta. The Netherlands gained the early initiative in the decider, but Brazil soon took control to complete a thrilling five-set 21-25, 25-18, 25-27, 25-19, 15-7 win. They have won six and lost two of their eight Pool E games, while the Netherlands' 100 per cent record ended.
