Netherlands defeated Poland by 3-1 and kept the perfect score in the Pool. Lonneke Sloetjes was simply brilliant as she scored 26 points, while Anne Buijs added 15 for the Dutch squad. With this win Netherlands secured place at the second stage. We will only see if they are going to the Playoffs round (as the second in the Pool) or directly to the Quarterfinals (as the first placed in the Pool).
On the other side Poland is in big problem as they suffered the second defeat at the tournament. Not even excellent performance of Katarzyna Skowronska Dolata (20 points) could make any difference in the game against the hosts. Now, white and reds simply must win against Slovenia in the last round or they will be eliminated from EuroVolley!
Belgium have also qualified for the second stage after they outplayed Azerbaijan by 3-0. Lise Van Hecke was leading the Belgian troops with 15 points, while on the other side Polina Rahimova made 20 points for Azerbaijan.
