WCH M: Gyorgy Grozer show in Katowice, Germany won!

by WoV

Germany bounced back completely and destroyed Iran by sweeping them 3-0. They are now very close to semifinals.


Good, better, Grozer!


25-19 – Grozer ended the game with classy spike.

21-15 – Kaliberda just 1 on 1 destroyed Ghafour. This match is good as over.

17-13 – Finally Grozer is no longer serving. That was eight in a row.

16-12 – Fromm went in for Westphal, Grozer on the serving spot and everything turned around. Iran has no response for “Big Gyorgy”.

8-11 – Another series in favour of Iran put them up to an already nice three point lead.

7-8 – Great sequence from Iran winning two long rallies, gave them a slight lead in the third set.


German defence


25-21 – Bohme’s hammer block ended the second period. Germany is very close to record three points here.

23-19 – Grozer just reached sky high for that spike. Wow.

19-16 – Long rally belongs to Germany, it’s now three points differential. Kovac had to call a time-out.

16-14 – Iran was back into the lead for a moment, but Germany didn’t stop fighting and they have their shaky two point lead before the closing par of the second set.

8-6 – Grozer found his rhythm now and when that happens, Germany looks dangerous.




25-15 – What a beatdown directed by Germans in the first set. Amazing performance.

19-13 – Kovac did his usual double substitution featuring Marouf out and Mahmoudi in, but that didn’t help much, it’s Germany’s set to lose right now.

16-11 – Iranian mini series let them come back into the game 14-11. Heynen asked for time-out, which worked out perfectly as Germany regained the lead.

13-6 – First substitution for Iran, Mirzajanpour is out, Ebadipour in.

11-6 – Iran is in trouble right now. Reception is not good and Kovac reacts with time-out.

8-5 – Germany managed to enter this game with high spirits, snatching the early lead against Iran.


Germany: Schwarz, Kaliberda, Bohme, Grozer, Kampa, Gunthor, L Steuerwald

Iran: Marouf, Ghaemi, Mousavi, Gholami, Ghafour, Mirzajanpour, L Zarif

20:08 CET – Coach Heynen deploying some secret strategies with volunteers during warm-ups.

Brazil, France and Poland on podium and I’ll be very happy!

would be a situation in the least funny, if the decision to stay ‘pont-average’, tomorrow.

Germany has already qualified no matter what the result is between France and Iran. France will be qualified unless they lose 0-3 with -18 or more point difference. France will be the leader unless they lose 0-3 with -10 or more point difference. So my prediction would be France, Germany and Brasil, Russia, which will take 3 points from Poland tomorrow. Brasil will get through Germany easily for sure. France would be the second favorite for the final if they keep playing like this.

I don’t know what was wrong, but they where moody from the beginning . That wasn’t real Iran.

ASIK September 18, 2014 - 6:33 am

Germany dont deserve for it. It’s unfair each of the five teams are stronger and much better. They have luck, but that is end for Germany. They will take 4 place
