The Russian women’s team defeated Belgium in the 1/8 finals of the European Championship 2019. Girls go to Poland, where on September 4 they will hold a match in the quarterfinals. Our team in a not-so-simple match beat Belgium in four sets (25:22, 25:15, 21:25, 25:22). The match lasted 103 minutes.
The first two games were won quite confidently, but then I had to compete and suffer. Belgium, of course, was individually inferior to our team, but overplayed in some segments, took the third set and caused a lot of problems in the fourth. But Russia managed and goes further.
