FIVB World Cup 2019 - Sept. 14 to 29, Japan

  • 20-5 in the 3rd.


    25-9 :what: What a slaughtering!


    I think this is one of the 2 lowest score in the whole World Cup. The other was Korea vs Argentina (same score).


    And according to the WR, DOM is the 10th best team, in the other hand; Argentina the 12nd...:read:

    TUR is, by far, a top 10 team :teach:

  • I also find interesting that people totally ignore Netherlands when they have actually reached the semi finals in both Olympics and Word Championship, but I guess some people sees VNL wins as more important.


    If Netherlands makes it....I will certainly consider them among the favorites, just behind CHN, SRB and ITA.

    No one sees vnl more important. But people see most recent performance as most important;)

  • Great start by Sloëtjes! Reception needs to be better, so Sloëtjes doesn't get overloaded with balls.

  • How can you give this away!!!:wall:

    Netherlands never can close out a set and that is the reason why they never became first in a tournament!


    Buijs again the weak link in the team:down:

  • ROSSIYA ROSSIYA ROSSIYA


    Russia makes a great comeback to stay in the medal race! Fantastic volleyball.... as commented by the FIVB commentator (who's this guy??? seems to be a good commentator)


    RUS 26 : 24 NED -- Set 1


    Two RUS blocks give the first set to RUS.
