It’s a pity that the first set collapsed even after a good flow. Korean women’s volleyball failed to avoid losing streak in the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB).
The women’s volleyball team led by coach Cesar Gonzalez lost to Croatia with a set score of 0-3 (23-25 21-25 14-25) in the third match of the second week held at Nielsen Nelson Arena in Brasilia, Brazil on the 17th (Korean time). .
Croatia, ranked 30th in the world, is a relatively weak team, ranked lower than Korea, ranked 27th, and was considered a victim of one win. Croatia also had no victory yet, so they expected their first victory, but Korea was helplessly beaten.
With the defeat on this day, Korea suffered 7 consecutive losses in the tournament, and 19 consecutive losses including last year’s tournament.
The national team was repeatedly blocked by Croatia’s blocking wall that day. It was greatly pushed to 5-14 in the number of blocks. I was helpless against the opponent’s fast attack and moving attack.
Middle blocker Jeong Ho-young (KGC Ginseng Corporation) scored the most points with 10 points, and outside hitter Pyo Seung-joo (IBK Industrial Bank) contributed 9 points, but it was not enough.
In particular, it is regrettable that they were reversed after leading 23-20 at the end of the first set. In a situation where only two points were raised, the set was set, and the atmosphere was quickly disturbed as five runs were allowed in a row. Entering this tournament, the national team is repeating the pattern of collapsing in clutch situations.
After losing the first set, Korea was unable to turn around in the 2nd and 3rd sets. Until the middle of the 2nd set, Kang So-hui’s consecutive serve scores led to a close match, but the gap widened in the second half. I was lethargic in the 3rd set.메이저놀이터
