·1 min read

RIMINI, Italy — Brazil defeated the Canadian men's volleyball team 3-1 (25-17, 25-20, 20-25, 27-25) in Nations League action Sunday.

The Canadians were coming off their first win of the competition - a straight-sets decision Saturday over Argentina - after dropping their opening contest to the United States.

If there was a moral victory for Canada, Brazil came into Sunday's contest having not dropped a set in the tournament after sweeping both the U.S. and Argentina.

Canada's national men's and women's teams will both play a 15-match preliminary round until June 23. The top four countries in each division will advance to the semifinals and finals.

The Canadian women face Turkey on Monday.
