WUHAN, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- China eased past Germany 3-0 here on Monday evening to set up a final rematch against defending champions Brazil in the women's volleyball final of the 7th CISM Military World Games.

Olympic champion Yuan Xinyue reaped 12 kills, two stuffs and five aces for a game-high 19 points to lead the Chinese women to a 25-12, 25-8, 25-9 victory over Germany in the semifinal with Liu Yanhan and Gao Yi adding 12 apiece.

"I am in good shape today. I am happy that I was able to grasp my opportunities to attack and score. Hopefully I can do better in the next match," Yuan told Xinhua.

The Chinese women, who had finished runners-up to Brazil in the last Military World Games four years ago, swept Brazil 3-0 in their preliminary Group A encounter on Thursday.

"We will just try our best tomorrow, play our game and get ready for any change and challenge on the court," Yuan added.

Earlier on Monday, Brazil rallied past DPR Korea 19-25, 25-14, 25-23, 25-16 in the other semifinal match to secure the other ticket for final, which is slated for Tuesday evening.
