With the victory over South Americans, the team coached by italian expert Roberto Piazza is assured of a place in the eighth final.
In the fifth and decisive set, the Netherlands made a bad start, 0-3, but that damage was quickly repaired: Thijs Ter Horst came into service at 6-5 for Argentina and he was author of a beautiful run thanks to which his teammates reached a clear 12-6! Argentina, the winner of the Olympic bronze in Tokyo, is now on the verge of elimination from the tournament after suffering the second five-set setback. Bruno Lima and Luciano Vicentín top-scored Argentina with 17 points each, with the latter who added 4 blocks, just like his teammate Nicolás Zerba.

In the same Pool, Iran managed to beat Egypt in Pool F in Ljubljana, Slovenia, but tougher than expected, and even losing a set (3-1, partially 25:14, 25:19, 22:25 and 24:26). After prevailing over Argentina in the first day in a match that was referred to as the battle for supremacy in the pool, the Western Asian side was to face the easiest rivals on paper.
However, in a tournament like this, no opponent should be underestimated! And in fact Egypt ripped one set off the favorites and was on a par with them in the fourth set that went even into overtime.
Milad Ebadipour with 18 points and Aliasghar Mojarad with 4 winning blocks took care that Iran finish the match with all 3 points, while Mohamed Issa scored 16 points for the Africans, and Abdelrahman Seoudy made 6 blocks.
