WCH 2018 M: Brazil create the first defeat of Canada

353 0

Brazil were in a difficult situation before the start of the match, because a loss to Canada could have been a huge step backward at the World Championship...

 

In order to stay in a good position for the second round, Brazil needed a victory and they achieved it against the undefeated team so far Canda 3-1 (25-22, 19-25, 25-23, 25-18).

Brazil have opened the game by winning the first sets, while the Canadian team and pressure put them in a difficult position in the second set when they couldn't do anything to stop the rival.

In the third and the fourth set, Renan Dal Zotto's side raised the level of the play to beat the Canadian side in four sets!

Wallace de Souza had 24 points in a jersey of Brazil, while on the other side John Perrin ended a game with 18 points.

WCH 2018 W: The MVP award goes to Tijana Boskovic!

I thought the same based on performance in the final match, but then I check the official stats for setters, and Malinov is #1 while Ognjenovic is #6, https://japan2018.fivb.com/en/competition/statistics

However, it is completely ridiculous that Serbia beat Italy twice in World Championship and still 4 players from Italy (2nd place) are in dream team, 2 from China (3rd place) and only 1 from Serbia (1st place) Reply

What about maja, I think she deserved it more than the other setter, malinov was taken out of the games several times it doesn't make sense. Reply

How to qualify for the Olympic Games 2020 volleyball tournament? One place already guaranteed!

In Women's competition Netherlands (6) will face Italy (7), Mexico (18) and Azerbaijan (19). Very strange to see the numbers 2 and 4 of the WCH in the same poule. Reply
