WCH 2018 M: One more step - The reigning champions Poland beat USA to claim the final!

1043 0

The reigning champions Poland are one step away from defending the title they won in 2014!

 

After an amazing battle in the semifinals, Poland have booked the ticket for the final where they will mee the same rival as in 2014 - Brazil! It will be a remake of the final and that shows how serious these two countries work when we talk about volleyball.

Vital Heynen has come to lead this generation to one more medal. They have the silver in their pocket, but we are pretty much sure that the Polish team will consider the silver as a failure...

What happened in this game? Bartosz Kurek and Michal Kubiak happened. These two guys led the reigning champions to the finals, having amazing performances. Simply, the U.S. team didn't have any solution for them. Kurek ended the game with 29 points, while Kubiak added 22.

Even though the USA had a 2-1 lead, they didn't manage to keep it. In the tie-break, they were trailing 10-3, but thanks to Daniell McDonnell they decreased the lead of the rival to 11-9! However, Kurek ended the scoring run of the USA which created a huge opportunity for Poland to finish the game.

Anderson (19), Sander (19) and Russell (18) were the best scorers in John Speraw's team...

Semifinals: 

Brazil - Serbia 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22)

Poland - USA 3-2 (25-22, 20-25. 23-25, 25-20, 15-11)

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply

If Russia had won the match even in 5 sets they would have classified because they would have ended up with same number of victories than us but one more point. So before the last set against China ended USA was not classified Reply
