Italy and the Netherlands, both titans of European Championship volleyball, delivered a game of intense proportions. Although Italy faced the early loss of Roberto Russo due to injury, the squad demonstrated resilience, making a strong comeback. The Dutch team, on the other hand, heavily relied on the incredible performance of Nimir Abdel Aziz, who was nothing short of outstanding.

Nimir Abdel-Aziz was the star player of the game, notching up a whopping 31 points, with a 58% success rate in attacks. Italy’s Alessandro Michieletto and Yuri Romano also showcased impressive prowess, contributing 22 and 21 points respectively.

With this significant win, Italy proudly marks their sixteenth entry into the European Championship’s top four bracket. Fans can now eagerly await Italy’s next game, a pivotal semifinal match against France at PalaLottomatica in Rome on Thursday, 14th September.
