Here is a quick rundown of the games that happened during the second day of the FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Championship 2018 at Italy and Bulgaria.
Volleyverse reporter Zuzanna Dulnik caught up with Team USA and Berlin Recycling Volleys star Paul Lotman recently to discuss a wide range of issues including the FIVB World Cup triumph, the team to beat in Rio, Poland’s Olympic pain and the upcoming club season.
Team USA claimed their second FIVB Men’s World Cup – and qualified for the 2016 Olympics – with a 3-1 (25-20, 25-21, 17-25, 25-20) victory over Argentina on a dramatic final day in Japan.
Poland are the only undefeated team left in the FIVB Men’s World Cup after a 3-1 (17-25, 25-19, 25-23, 25-15) victory over Team USA on a dramatic Day 9 in Japan.
Team USA and Poland both kept their unbeaten record intact – but neither team had things all their own way on day five of the FIVB Men’s World Cup.
