Is Brazil the country of volleyball?

Close your eyes ...
Imagine you’re playing for the Brazilian Volleyball team ... Now think about all the public screaming your name, because you have played a super match from the begging to the end.
It is the tiebreaker set and your team is from one point of winning the title disputed, then you score the last point of the game. Besides winning a cup, you give joy to the people from your country.

That's what usually happens in a volleyball game. We generally have matches that make you singing, jumping and twisting all the time.
