In their second appearance, they are pitted against Greece, Puerto Rico and Chinese Taipei in Group 3’s Pool C, which will be played in Kozani, Greece. They will have a chance to perform better when they have home advantage in Almaty in the second week, when they face Spain, Germany and Chinese Taipei in Pool F. Under coach Andrey Patrakov, the team did not qualify for the Poland 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship and last competed in that event in 2006, when they finished 21st, two places lower than their only other appearance in Argentina 2002. At the 2014 Asian Games they won three of their seven matches. A defeat to Chinese Taipei gave them an overall rank of 10th.
