WCH 2018 M: Poland smash Iran in three sets!

by WoV

The World Champions have made a huge step towards the Final Six of the FIVB men's volleyball World Championship 2018!



You are probably wondering why we are saying Final Six, when we all know there is the second round to be played. If Poland get there with a 5-0 score, they will probably need one more win to advance to the Final Six, because of all of the victories from this round count in the second round…

In a game against Iran, Poland had a control in the first two sets, while in the third set they were trailing until the very end of the set (21-18), but with a 7-1 scoring run, they managed to make a turnaround!

Michal Kubiak was the best scorer with 12 points, while three more players ended the game with double digits: Nowakowski, Szalpuk, Kurek – 10 points each.

In Iran, Amir Ghafour had 17 points!
