Even Iran had two match points (14:13) but Antiga’s team somehow save them all.

In the match preview, Kubiak said that If they beat Iran, Poland will win the tournament so Polish fans are waiting for him to fulfil the promise.

Antiga’s side had a good display against the Asian team, but only in the first two sets. Poland proved that they are slightly better team in this moment. 

Iran didn’t play as their fans expect in the first set, but in the other three they gave strong resistance to the World Champions. The outcome is – they lost the second but in the third and fourth Lozano’s side managed to tie the score 2:2.

In the tie break, Poland were trailing all the time but at the end, their fans are celebrating the win.
