WCH 2018 M: First win for Serbia at the World Champs

277 0

Serbia have recorded the first victory at the World Championship!

 

Even though the first was very difficult to play, as it was an extended set, Serbia somehow set the control and won it. In the other two sets, Serbia didn't have any troubles. 

In the third set, Nikola Grbic was not satisfied with the reaction of his players since Cameroon started decreasing the lead, however,  yelling at the players during the time-out helped a lot as the boys from Serbia woke up and clinched the game in three sets.

Nikola Grbic combined for this game, keeping Uros Kovacevic, Aleksandar Atanasijevic (played a few minutes) and Marko Podrascanin on the bench. The top scorer was Drazen Luburic with 19 points, while Nemanja Petric added 12.

WCH 2018 M: These are the Pools for the second round of the World Champs!

Re: @Sorin Acela
Agree!!! In addition to that, first round groups were UNBALANCED. For instance, Group A consists of really weak teams: Italy, Slovenia, Dom. Rep., Arg, Japan and Belgium!!! On the other hand, Pool C has SERBIA, USA and RUSSIA, most probably ITALY would have lost against all of these 3 teams. This is UNFAIR! Teams should not be charged with their first round performances because of this obvious unbalanced groups!! AGAIN, CROOKED FIVB!!! Reply

maybe it's time to reward constant performance and results throughout the whole championship instead of last games Reply

The FIVB destroyed the World Championship by keeping the records of the first round for the second round! This way, most teams have no plausible chance to promote to round 3, including Russia and France!!!! Reply
