2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

  • Brazil win the 3rd set. Does that guarantee 1) NED 2) JPN 3) SRB?

  • The Japanese team just failed to top the Pool E. The Brazilian team got the set 3 in a nail-biting set.


    If JPN wins 3-1 here, it will collect set ratio 26-7, below NED 26-6.

  • Brazil looked so passionate in the end of that set, almost like they think they can still make it...


    Japan lost from 24-21.. and then another mp. I hope they will play good enough in f6

  • I think they will put Japan, Netherlands and USA in the same pool. Of course will japan will have a luxury to pick who will be their opponent. And wany wanted USA to be in the pool. And in the end, the USA team will shock all of tjem and win this tournament..:lol::lol::lol:

  • After losing the the third set in such a way, Russia is just a mess in the fourth one. They fought until they could do it. I dont see coming back and taking the match.


    So, USA shall thanks China :whistle:


    Btw, where are the brazilian users? They havent been here since a while.

    Japan blew so many match points! And also wasted the golden chance to be finished first in the pool. Well, you already qualified in a nail-bitting first set, you cant expect to have it all.

  • Guys remember wch 2014. Italy was like hurricane but at semi final all changed for them and could finish as 4th. It looks like same story until now.


    IMO Serbia will pass Italy, if they face.

  • I wouldn't have taken Araki out until the job was finished. Or Shinnabe for that matter

  • The rally for 4-3 in 4th set - beautiful <3

  • Thanks Brazil. I hope we can get Japan in our group now

    The JPN team will be the darling of every other team to stay in the same group as theirs. Every one will be vying for the Japanese love.

  • Assuming CHN wins this match I think there are 3 possibilities.


    NED-CHN-USA + ITA-JPN-SRB


    NED-JPN-USA + ITA-CHN-SRB

    NED-CHN-SRB + ITA-JPN-USA
