2022 FIVB Women's World Championships - Netherlands and Poland

  • Wait, so if Netherlands win this match, do they have a chance of going to QFs or none at all?

  • ugh 23-25

    The bike promise clearly didn't work

  • Wait, so if Netherlands win this match, do they have a chance of going to QFs or none at all?

    They can only win 2 sets and make japan play italy and china play brazil in the quarters


    otherwise it's japan-brazil and china-italy

  • Give Ishikawa a little space in the block and she'll spike the ball down with authority :box:

  • Can we say that Ned has been quite the disappointment in this tournament?:down:

  • Can we say that Ned has been quite the disappointment in this tournament?:down:

    After what they've shown in VNL I don't think this is a disappointment.

  • Ned are capable of coming back from a 6 point deficit, only to lose again 23-25

  • Think this last game was illustrative for the entire WCH of the Dutch team:(

  • Polder should have played more this tournament

  • This was probably the last match with Selinger as coach of Dutch NT. His project that started several years ago to prepare for the WCH in The Netherlands is a failure. There is no argument to renew the contract.


    Anyway, he looks pale and unwell. He should take time off and focus on his health. Knowing the bad illness he had past year.

  • Due to the joint hosts, those teams that play in the NED remain in the NED; while those in POL stay in POL... for apparent reasons of efficiency & economical purposes, no crossing among groups in the QF thus teams will meet again in the KO stage.



    "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." - Arthur Schopenhauer, 19th-century philosopher

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but China wouldn't have to count on this match if they themselves hadn't gone five with the Netherlands, right?
