Brazil Surges Into #VNL Lead, USA Drops to Fifth with Loss

2018 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League

  • May 25 – July 8, 2018
  • Schedule/Results

Poland narrowly avoided an upset, picking up a five-set win over Italy, thanks to 15 blocks and 33 Italian errors.

The United States was not as lucky, falling in a surprise sweep at the hands of giant killer Germany, who handed Poland its lone loss to wrap up Week 2 play. The Germans bested the Americans in every way, seemingly still reeling from dropping a five-setter to Brazil last week after leading 2-0.

Canada avoided a home upset, shaking off Australia late in each set of a sweep to vault ahead of the United States in the standings.
