WATCH: Group 1 Day 3 Full Match Replays and Highlights

2017 FIVB VOLLEYBALL WORLD GRAND PRIX

  • Group 1
  • July 7th – August 6th
  • FIVB World Grand Prix Round 3
  • Schedule/Results

Pool I1, which features the Americans and Dutch, among other teams, took the day off in Cuiaba, but the penultimate day of pool play still had plenty of drama.

A 3-2 win by Japan over Serbia, who have already qualified for the Final 6, was the only thing that kept the entire field for the final from being clinched with 1 day to go.

Japan would need a win on Sunday against Russia, who has been wildly up-and-down at this tournament so far, to keep their hopes alive on Sunday. They’ll be the first match played on the final day of competition (the early game in Hong Kong). If they were to win, then both Brazil and the Netherlands, who both play in the late pool I1 in Brazil, would need to win to lock up their spot in Nanjing.

For the Dutch, who fortunately play 0-8 Belgium in their final match of the tournament, a loss on Sunday would compete a historic collapse. They looked like one of the teams to beat through 2 weeks of play, but have now lost two straight to the United States and Brazil.

Brazil’s road is a little tougher. They’ll need to beat the United States to keep their hopes alive, with the biggest advantage being that the United States has already qualified through and might ease-off in their final match of preliminary play.

Italy locked up their spot with a 3-0 sweep of the Dominicans. The Dominican lost in spite of finding a way to hold Italy’s budding superstar Paola Ogechi to just 9 points – her lowest output of the tournament so far.
