VNL 2022: The Netherlands win the battle against Argentina. Three points for France and Italy

3 min read

What happened today in Quezon City, Philippines?
In first match of the day, The Netherlands continued to pursuit their playoff chances, following a great triumph at tie break (25:22, 23:25, 25:20, 19:25, 13:15) over Argentina.

In second match, France dominate Japan by beating them in straight sets (22:25, 25:27, 16:25). Everything is going very well for the French, who are currently spending a perfect in Pool 3 of the Volleyball Nations League 2022. After a forfeit victory against China and a clear success against the Netherlands (3-0) on Thursday, Andrea Giani’s side followed up well against Japan. They had to be wary of the team led by their compatriot Philippe Blain, who made an almost
perfect start to the competition with 5 wins in 6 games before this match, and who achieved a prestigious success against Italy (3-2) yesterday. Giani put in six Tokyo Olympic champions in the lineup, together with the libero Benjamin Diez, while Blain strangely decided to leave a duo of most prominent players of his team, Nishida and Ishikawa, on the bench for the whole game.
Jean Patry was the top scorer among the winners with 14 points.
Now, with six victories and only one defeat on the account, France retained the lead in the standings.

In third and last game of the day, Italy sweeps Slovenia in 2021 EuroVolley final replay.
It was supposed to be a challenge, instead, it was just a pretty walk. Italy overwhelmed a disappointing Slovenia in just over an hour of play, winning with a clear and easy 3-0 (25:19, 25:16, 25:21) to reach a 5-2 score. After the crash with Japan, Italians were ready to find the victory immediately, doing so against the rival from an epic EuroVolley final last year for whom Urnaut and Štern didn’t take the court. Alessandro Michieletto was the top scorer on the winning side with 16 points.
