  • 4th set just about to start, USA leading 2:1


    Not a very pretty match so far. Reception for both teams is on a very low level and thats not only because of great services.


    Good that Günthör is back. He is having a good match so far. :thumbup:

  • Germany - USA 1:3 (22:25, 17:25, 25:18, 23:25)

  • Give us the stats, please, I want to see Samuel Holt/Maxwell Colt'stats :D

    You wont like it, but no stats available, i'm sorry :roll:


    Germany played without Grozer, USA without Anderson (he is still in USA due to personal reasons and will fly directly to Poland)


    starting line-up Germany: Lukas Kampa, Jochen Schöps, Max Günthör, Marcus Böhme, Denis Kaliberda, Christian Fromm, Ferdinand Tille
    starting line up USA: Taylor Sander, David Lee, Micah Christenson, Carson Clark, Maxwell Holt, Garrett Muagututia, Erik Shoji


    Best scorers: Denis Kaliberda (18) Max Günthör (13) , Taylor Sander (15)


    Some remarks (not stats based, so......)
    Germany:

    • Fromm got early subbed for Westphal in first set and just came back occasionally
    • reception is a bit worrying, too many errors, even from "easier" serves. (At least 6 faults in second set) It became better with Steuerwald who came in in third set for Tille.
    • Blocking worked quite well, Günthör with a good match. Germany was controlling the wingers, but therefore the door for the pipes were wide open.
    • Grozer got red card (as a sub) :lol:

    USA:

    • USA will play better with Anderson as opposite. Not a good match by Clark.
    • Great pipes by Sander
    • Shaky reception but good serves. David Lees floaters were a nightmare for the germans
