TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran volleyball team was defeated against US in straight sets (25-23, 25-23, 25-21) in the second match of the USA Volleyball Cup series on Thursday.
The Iranian team had lost to US 3-1 (27-25,25-21, 27-29, 25-17) on Sunday at the Galen Center on the campus of the University of Southern California.
