This year’s International Volleyball League was a bubble caused by widespread restrictions during the so-called coronavirus pandemic. For whites and whites, the Rimini game is crucial to the preparations for the Tokyo Olympics. Therefore, Vital Heynen will rotate the lineup so that everyone has the opportunity to participate in this game.
The first opponent of the Poles was the Italians, who set up a reserve team in the League of Nations. Therefore, in the composition of the Polish national team, they did not participate in the competition, among other things, Kubiak (Leon) Hein (Heynen) decided Muzaj (Muzaj), Somacz (czomacz), Binjek (Bieniek), Fornal (Fornal), Bednorz (Bednorz), Kobos (Kłos) and Wojtaszek (Wojtaszek) start the game.
His decision turned out to be very correct. The Pole entered the game very confidently and quickly rose to a few points after serving ace Muzaja and Bednorz received the serve. They even led 24:16, but after a brief crisis, when they could not complete the offense, they managed to build a tight barrier. Therefore, the Poles won the first game with 25:19.
In the second set, the Poles had more trouble with their opponents. The Italians were able to stop the Poles, so they even led by 18:16. However, at the end of the game, the obstacle became Polish territory and the Italians began to make mistakes, which eventually led to Vital Heynen’s team winning by 25:20.
In the third set, the Poles returned to their best form game. Thanks to his excellent lick and point block (9:7), they quickly gained two advantages. In the next few minutes, the Heynen team’s dominance continued to increase due to their lead by as many as 6 points (16:10) during the second technical breakthrough. Muzaj had problems ending the offense, but after Fornal’s serve ace, the Pole quickly regained the advantage (20:14). In the end, they calmly controlled the result of the game, eventually scoring 18 points and 3-0 in the entire game.
On Saturday, the Poles will face Serbia. The meeting starts at 16:00 and covers Sport.pl and Sport.pl LIVE applications.
