WCH M: Poland showed some serious strength

by WoV

Stars lined-up perfectly for Poland. As their fans, they were more than amazing this night versus Serbia. Poland - Serbia 25-19, 25-18, 25-18.

Atmosphere in National Stadium is beyond amazing. Over 65000 people are in the Stadium and are making history of volleyball.


Polish fans

1. set:

8-7: Both teams seem composed and not affected by the enourmous crowd. Still nobody made any kind of long series as we go to first technical time-out with Poland leading 8-7 due to two consecutive mistakes by Atanasijevic.

16-12: Serbia has much problems with the reception. Nikic seems completely out of focus and is making a lot of mistakes. Poland is just capitalising on Serbia’s mistakes and doing that very well.

20-15: Kolakovic asked for another time-out as Serbia is in trouble here in the first set. Polish middle blockers are dominating the game through the middle so far.

25-19: Last point of the set basicaly sums up everything that happened so far. Strong servis of Poland targeting Nikic managed to get an easy point to win the first set.



2. set:

4-1: Reception is continuing to trouble Serbia and Nikic just had to be substituted. Uros Kovacevic is in.

8-4: Is it the fans, is it the atmosphere, who knows, but Poland is flying. Zagumny is just amazing with his distribution and if the “red and whites” continue like this, they will be a force to be reckon with.

14-5: Another substitution in Serbian team, Vlado Petkovic is coming for Nikola Jovovic to try and change something. Kolakovic asked for his first time-out early in the second set but the Polish terror lasted until 14-5.

20-12: What an ace from Wlazly. He is just destroying everything right now. Every time when Serbia wants to try and comeback he comes up with some great plays.

25-18: Serbia showed some signs of life at the end of the set, but as soon as Antiga brought Zagumny back, story was over.



3. set:

5-2: As soon as Nikic came back, Poland targeted him with every service and managed to score an early lead.

8-4: This as good as over. Poland will not back down as they can smell the win now. Antiga’s gameplan is showing to be amazing.

16-11: This is the last huddle where Serbia can try and improve happenings of the court. Poland is playing great and there is not much that Serbia can do right now.

16-14: Antiga is flying near the out line telling everybody on the court not to be complacent as the game is not over yet. Time-out for Poland.

19-14: Amazing move from Antiga, whatever he told to his team worked just fine. Poland is again at the comfortable lead of five points.

25-18: This is it, Poland dominated whole match from start to finish.


Poland won!

Serbia played very bad. Receivers didn’t stand the atmosphere and Poland showed real power! Nikic was out of the whole game, and setters disn’t have any solution. Wlazly was the man tonight and also Mika played really good
