German volleyball players won their last endurance test before the World Cup and made an impressive comeback.
In a dress rehearsal on Saturday (September 17, 2022), national coach Vital Heinen’s team beat Olympic silver medalist Brazil 3:2 (23:25, 16:25, 25:21, 25:19, 15:13) . , Germany was already 0:2 behind in Berlin, but then managed to catch up.
With the World Cup starting next week in the Netherlands and Poland (23 September to 15 October), Germany will take on Bulgaria in Arnhem on 25 September. Other opponents in the tough Group C are Olympic champions USA and world champions Serbia, as well as Canada and Kazakhstan.
Heenan: “The Strongest Group”
Henen sees the group as “the strongest in the tournament, with two world-class teams battling to win the group. Canada, Bulgaria and Germany will be the three teams battling for progress.”
The top four teams in each group advance to the second round. In this, German women’s players were unsuccessful in the last World Cup held in Japan in 2018 and eventually reached eleventh place there.
