The result of the match against Bulgaria should not make much sense. 3:0 The second-worst team in the National League this year has only won one game so far. This is not the determinant of our strength. Therefore, in addition to clearing opponents, the Poles mainly completed their tasks on the court, which is even more pleasing.
The Bulgarians had no chance, because the Poles gave a wonderful concert on Wednesday. The starting lineup includes Wilfredo Leon, Norbert Huber, Jakub Kochanowski, Fabian Drzyzga, Łukasz Kaczmarek, Bartosz Bednorz and Damian Wojtaszek. As we all know, in addition to the strength of the center and Leon’s offense, the most important thing is the configuration of the wing, especially Kazmalek and Bednorz.
Three sets are enough. With Leon’s outstanding performance in attacking and serving, he won the first game with 19 points. The second game was won by 15 points. Almost all the players were even, but he did his best. Getting third with 12 points is almost like training. The Bulgarians are completely confused about how their opponents maintain such an excellent level of competition. The Poles now have the two highest-victory matches of the current international league-previously only Australia was better: 3:0 and minor points 75:38 (25:16, 25:10, 25:12).
Who is the most surprised? It may be the one who had to partially save the situation in this game, namely Bartosz Bednorz. His host in the first two meetings of the League of Nations did not perform well in the offense. Now you can say: finally! Because Bednorz performed very well in this area-he completed 11 of the 17 attacks.
But that’s not all: he ended the game with a 90% success rate, one block and one ace, so he scored a total of 14 points in the three games against Bulgaria. If Vital Heynen didn’t cross Bednorz, and he said after six games that he didn’t open the door of the Tokyo warehouse for him, then who knows whether it is worth considering the option of bringing him to Japan. Bednorz added points at a very important moment. In this game, thanks to Fabian Drzyzga’s outstanding performance, the Polish team looked very smooth. So he tried everything possible to convince the Belgians that they started from the tenth meeting to give players closest to the Olympics more and more opportunities.
Jakub Kochanowski should already be in this group. The meeting between the midfielder and Bulgaria confirmed this point-he scored 4 points in the offense and made no mistakes. He also added 3 blocks and 1 service ace. Such games are included in the list of players who will fly to Japan. Heynen hasn’t been disappointed yet.
Norbert Huber (11 points and 88% offensive efficiency) and Łukasz Kaczmarek (12 points, 45% offensive efficiency) also took advantage of their opportunities. No need to remind you about Wilfredo Leon (9 points, 2 serve kings, 54% offensive efficiency). Everyone gave the team what it needed and confirmed that the coach can count on them. This is the general conclusion after the entire Polish game in Rimini on Wednesday. Now is the time for two more difficult tests-the Netherlands and Brazil. However, the calm of the Bulgarians showed that our opponents encountered bigger problems in the next few days. Report the meeting in real time in the Sport.pl and Sport.pl LIVE apps.
