I have a redundant question. Why does Serbia send team B to the world cup?
Buijs at position 1 receiving was an easy point getter for Japan.
"NED, from a 5 nil down, to the first TTO 8-7, that's the definition of a turnaround" - Commentator
NED desperately need this win! Otherwise they will head to the EOQ with 3 consecutive losses, you don’t want that!
Tell the JPN team they won't win a point just by a push!
Korean team needs to figure out how to crack the US team. They keep losing to them every match. They beat Brazil and Serbia. They have the potential to beat USA too.
this is SRB B team, you know... i doubt they could beat full-strength SRB or US...
ishikawa, again, mostly hits sharp cross court. don’t coaches watch video? how’s it i know this and they don’t?
I’m afraid that Dutch federation’s money are gonna be in vain
It would have ended in straight sets if not for Plak
Miyashita's sets were terrible.
it looks like DOM will finish 7th, but tied with KOR and JPN/NED, whichever wins this match, in win/loss ratio. not too bad, considering they are without brenda. they beat KOR and NED here but lost to JPN ...
The Dutch team was just a fingertip away from being swept by the Japanese team. Plak reversed the outcome 26-24.
I think it's a mistake by Nakada to take out Ishikawa & Shinnabe, sub them with Kurogo and Miyashita at the end of set 3.
JPN is playing with such short MBs...
buijs is having trouble getting kills..,
A wonderful win by the Japanese team -- full 3 points
JPN v NED 3:1 (25-18, 27-25, 24-26, 25-21)
At 6 victories in the World Cup, it's a good achievement by the host team ==> and at 19 points, JPN ranks #5 in this World Cup, gets additional 50 WR points!
Brazil beat Russia on purpose so they could be fourth place instead of Japan. Those Brazilians.
Nice finish girls.
NED seems affected the most negatively playing Japan at home. This is familiar.
Fun tournament for me but I'm glad it's over
Considering Brazil is back in world cup competition, fifth place is a nice rank for Japan.
Brazil goes up from 5th in 2011 to 4th in 2019 so we 're finally not going to hear the baseless complaints about Brazil's fifth world cup ranking being repeated all the time in the world rankings anymore.
Any livestreams for awarding???
