‘Undefeated’ VNL women’s volleyball sees one win in tough Week 2 schedule
Four matches without a single set won. The Korean women’s volleyball team is looking to get back to winning ways in the second week of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) 2023. However, they face a tough schedule in Week 2 with World No. 1 Brazil and Korea in a battle of pride.
The team, coached by Cesar Gonzalez, will begin the second week of the VNL with a 9 a.m. match against Brazil in Brasilia, Brazil, on Friday. The Korean women’s volleyball team lost four straight matches in Week 1, which ended in Antalya, Turkey, without winning a single set. The Korean women’s volleyball team will need to improve its world ranking if it wants to qualify for next year’s Paris Olympics. However, the national team’s performance has been slow to improve as it is undergoing a generation change. They have lost 16 consecutive matches in the VNL after being swept in the tournament last year. The poor results in Week 1 have seen South Korea’s world ranking slip further to 26th, down from 23rd before the tournament.토토사이트
They have won just one match in 21 matches, including the World Championships, and their lethargic performance has continued in this tournament as they have not won a single set. Of the 16 nations competing in the VNL, four have lost all four matches. Only two of them have not won a set. South Korea is ranked 15th, ahead of Croatia in total points.
Brazil, Japan, and Germany, who will meet in Week 2, are all strong teams with three wins in Week 1. However, last-place Croatia is a team worthy of a one-point upset. If they succeed in hunting down Croatia and turning the tide, they’ll have a leg up in Week 3, which will be played at home. South Korea will return home after Week 2 and close out the qualifiers with Week 3 matches against Bulgaria, Dominican Republic, China, and Poland on June 27 at Suwon Chilbo Gymnasium in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do.
