Thanks both teams for this spectacular show, it was a pleasure to watch a game at this level, as a WCH semifinal should be.
Honestly i didn't believe Italy would make it to the final even after winning 10 games in row playing some amazing volleyball in this tournament. After every game i was asking myself: how long can they keep playing like this? The SF and the F is a totally different story, do they have the confidence to beat teams like China and Serbia?
Italy in this semifinal showed a strong character, not every team can recover from the 4th set scenario.
I admire how Italy read and study the opponent very well. Don't know but it looked for me like De Gennaro and Bosetti knew exactly where Zhu Ting will put the ball in every situation and position. That's actually huge and takes a lot of hard work from everyone involved but especially coach Mazzanti and the staff behind him who should all get a lot of credit no matter if it's gold or silver tomorrow.
For me i couldn't get a better final, i like both teams and i would be happy for either of them... Maybe 🇮🇹 a little bit more.
