Serbia have defeated Argentina in straight sets to score the sixth victory so far, making a huge step towards the Final Six!
The head coach Nikola Grbic combined players for this game, putting Drazen Luburic at the opposite position. Luburic ended a game with 14 points, while Ivovic added 12. In Argentina, Poglajen had 10.
Argentina won’t be able to reach the final six, so after the tomorrow’s game against France, they will travel home.
John Perrin and Nicholas Hoag delivered great show against Iran, creating the victory and finishing the game with 29 points each. Canada and Iran now have the same score, 4-3 each.
Belgium have also scored the win, beating Australian in a very uncertain game 3-0 (28-26, 28-26, 25-20). The Belgian team have now 4-3 score but it’s going to be difficult for them to qualify for the Final six.
The Netherlands are staying in the race for the final six, scoring the 3-1 win over Finland. Nimir Abdel Aziz was the best scorer with 22 points.
