Lausanne, Switzerlans, June 1, 2018 - It's been a quarter of a century
since Japan last beat Brazil (in the 1993 FIVB World League) and eleven
years since Japan even won a set against the South Americans, at the
2007 FIVB World Cup), as the two teams clash Saturday in Goiania, for
the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League. This leaves the reigning
Olympic champions with a 22-match winning streak in their head-to-head
series (including the last five matches in straight sets).
