Match Report

France move to semis after five-set loss to Netherlands

Article

France had to make sure they finish pool runners-up by winning at least one set in their last Pool B match, against the Netherlands, and so they did. They took the first two before the opponents found the way back to a 3-2 (21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 25-19, 15-11) win, their first (and last) of this continental Olympic qualifier.

At 19-17 France’s way was the first time the gap exceeded one point in the first set. The French did not let go of their advantage and pushed further through Benjamin Toniutti’s ace, which closed the set at 25-21. At this point, Laurent Tillie’s squad was safe for the semis.

Still they were well in control throughout the second set and won it by 25-20 despite opposite Nimir Abdel-Aziz’s 11 points for the Dutch team. Coach Laurent Tillie changed the entire starting line-up for the next sets. Roberto Piazza also made changes to his squad, but the Netherlands managed to level the match after 25-22 and 25-19.

They proved better in the tie-breaker as well, taking control of the scoreboard all the way through Wouter Ter Maat’s hit that closed the match at 15-11. Abdel-Aziz skipped the last three sets, but the 16 points he made in the first two placed him on top of the scorers’ chart.

Barthelemy CHINENYEZE just before spiking
Benjamin Toniutti, Captain of France: “We knew before the game that we need one set to go to the semi-finals, we won this first set. They played good, whole of today. I think they played the best game of the tournament. And we are happy to go to the semi-final. And we have not a lot of time to rest, but we will try to rest and to be ready for the battle against Slovenia tomorrow.”

Nimir Abdel-Aziz, Captain of The Netherlands: “At least we have a win. We took some sets and that’s it. We go home with a win, that´s ok. Still, the level wasn’t that good, but I think the guys who played today, the guys who came in, they showed a good level and we’re happy because of that.”
