Polish volleyball players came to Gdansk lit up with the successful tournament in Sofia. There they won all four matches, including batting. Brazil and the United States. It turns out once again that the Iranians are a very annoying opponent for them.
We played well in the first set, and then things got worse from party to party. I don’t want to blame the period we are in now: we are increasing the burden, we are stressing more. However, I must remember the final tournament in Bologna and the World Championship, which you must prepare for – remember Grbić.
tired or not “Biao-Czerwoni” made a lot of mistakes on Tuesday. In the third set up to six players spoiled the service – including those brought onto the field for the sole purpose of serving Carol Buterin I whole semenyuk. However, the coach argues that even such situations tell him a lot about the team.
I submitted three boys for the service and two of them didn’t perform well. I told them they had to get out of their role in the club. They are the main players out there, and they play all the time. But here sometimes they will have to change positions, and deal with coming from the bench, for a double fit. They must be able to adapt. It was a wonderful learning experience for me. I got to know them a little better. Getting to know each other is a process: it began in Canada, then in Sofia. Now we continue them – the Serbian coach confirms.
In total, Grbit players gave their opponents up to 41 points. They themselves have won nearly half of the Iranians’ mistakes. In most other items, they performed similarly to their competitors. However, they were unable to capitalize on the block advantage, scoring 12 points with only five tight blocks from the Asian team.
According to Gerbet, his mistakes were not the main reason for the failure. – If volleyball players risk too much, mistakes must happen. But I didn’t like the defense game. It was the worst. We didn’t create anything thanks to it, and we’ve already used it in matches with the United States or Brazil. Defense is a team’s emotional thermometer. Thanks to that, you can see that we did not play hard enough, we were not focused enough – the coach confirms.

Defeat against Iran is only the second game the Poles have lost in the League of Nations this year. Earlier, in Ottawa, the Italians defeated the Whites and the Reds. It was the European champions who beat the Poles in the league table after Tuesday’s matches Thanks to the 3-0 win over Bulgaria. But the position of the Grbi team has not changed. Behind their backs were the French, who this time stopped.
The order is important for sowing in the final stage in Bologna. However, Grbi didn’t seem to worry about his failure.
– That was the most important lesson I tried to teach the players We must continue our game even when the opponent starts to play well. We must not lose focus, take a lot of risks. We must be effective even when things don’t go our way. Obviously, I’m not very happy after the loss. But honestly, I’d rather lose now than win all games 3-0 and become champions. Then the failure finally comes and we immediately go home – the coach justifies.
His team has a day off on Wednesday. He will return to the match in Gdansk on Thursday at 20. The opponent will be the Chinese team. Broadcast the match on Polsat Sport and Polsat Box Go.
