What you must remember

France-Germany (3-1): (31-29, 15-25, 25-22, 25-22)

3 matches, 3 wins: a perfect record for the Olympic champions. Bernardinho’s men painfully won in 4 sets this Monday evening against a high quality German team. Revanchists after their elimination at the TQO by this French team, the Germans presented themselves as the most dangerous opponent of this group D. Which was clearly the case. After a perfectly mastered first round, the Blues let go in the second set which logically saw Germany come back to score. But once again led by a great Ngapeth (17 winning attacks), the Blues ended up winning after a particularly hotly contested match. The first place in the pocket, the hardest seems done for the French. Now let’s go to Latvia in two days, with the final phase in sight. The path is already mapped out.
