In their final Pool E match at the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the national team of China defeated Belgium 3-0 (25-18, 25-18, 27-25) in a direct duel for one of the two remaining quarter-final berths across both Phase 2 pools. Regardless of the other results later in the day, the Chinese secured the quarter-final spot with their victory.

With 16 points, Li Yingying was the leading scorer for the victorious team. Yuan Xinyue placed 4 aces on the rival’s side of the court. Britt Herbots, a Belgian outside hitter, led her team in scoring with 21 points. China settled at No. 4 in the pool with 7-2 and 20 points and will face Italy, who won Pool E, for a position in one of the semi-finals.

Japan defeated the co-hosts, the Netherlands, in straight sets, 3-0 (25-23, 25-23, 25-21), to fill in the last quarter-final slot from the third place (7-2; 21 points) in the charts. Mayu Ishikawa and Arisa Inoue highlighted Japan’s attack with 15 points apiece. The Dutch captain, Anne Buijs, scored the same number of points for her team.
