Nagoya, Japan. September 10, 2017. Nataliya Goncharova showed her composure during a 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-21) clinching win over Korea in Nagoya of the FIVB Women’s World Grand Champions Cup at Nippon Gaishi Hall. With just 1 hour 20 minutes remaining the game was by no means Korea’s and they were forced to hold on in the face of more Russia’s pressure. Russia has chipping away on the scoring, when Nataliya Goncharova probably enjoy her best match to popped over 15 points.

Russia coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin: In Japan, we’ve been able to measure ourselves against strong teams from around the world and it has been interesting to be around these teams and play against them. We are at the start of the journey with some new players in the team and it’s just the beginning to getting better.

Russia captain Ekaterina Pankova: Congratulations to my team today. In today’s game, we had good reception and attack.

Russia player Nataliya Goncharova:
 We won 3-0 and it wasn’t a hard match but overall in this competition it hasn’t been very good for our team. We need to play better and must practice with all the players as a team. We need more time to do that. I hope we will be better in the next competition. But we like playing in Japan because there’s always a comfortable atmosphere and the Japanese fans are so nice to us, so we’re happy every time we come to Japan. Many teams here play good volleyball – Brazil, China, USA – and they are very hard to play against. We must try to beat them in the next competition. Hopefully, in the World Championship.
