VNL 2022: USA defeat Argentina at tie break. Three points for France and Brazil in last games of Pool 5!

3 min read

Last day of Pool 5 in Osaka, Japan. In first match the day, USA wipe out Argentina’s hopes for 2022 Volleyball Nations League Final 8.
Americans played a spectacular five-set match (29:27, 22:25, 20:25, 25:13, 17:15), led by outside hitter TJ Defalco, who ended the game with 28 points, including three blocks to keep them undefeated this week’s four games in Osaka, and put them on top of the current charts with a 10-2 win-loss record and 27 points.
Led by their outside Luciano Palonsky with 24 points, Argentina played a great game, but the loss put an end to their hopes of making the Finals from July 20 to 24 in Bologna, as they finished their VNL campaign with 5-7 and 18 points, and they are currently ninth, just below the cut-off line. So the last remaining vacancy in the Finals will be decided between the Netherlands and Slovenia as they play their last games later on Sunday.

“We were expecting a good game and a fight from the beginning, but we weren’t expecting something like that. I am happy that everyone who is here witnessed a good fight,” said Defalco after the match. “I think this match was important because it was our next match and that made it the most important match for us. We don’t look any further or anything in the back. We always look at the match in front of us. We are really happy to win four in four; it was a team effort all the way around for this week and I’m just happy for the team. The big word now is rest!”

In the other game of the day, France defeat last placed Australia in straight sets (16:25, 12:25, 26:28), while Brazil defeat Japan with the same results 3-0 (25:23, 25:23, 25:22)
