Turkey to make second appearance in EuroVolley title-deciding match

Article

Turkey beat Poland 3-1 to reach the EuroVolley gold medal match for the second time in their history. The hosts will be playing against title-holders Serbia in a repeat of a Pool A match – which went Serbia’s way (3-1). As many as 12,000 fans attended the match – thus equalling the EuroVolley record set in the quarterfinal fixture against the Netherlands.

 

After 16 years, Turkey made amends for the 0-3 loss they suffered at the hands of Poland in the gold medal match of the 2003 edition – which took place in Ankara as well.

 

Again, Eda Erdem Dündar was the top scorer for Turkey with a tally of 19 points – as Hande Baladin and Kübra Akman recorded 16 and 12, respectively. Turkey out-blocked Poland 15 to 5.

 

The result accounts for Turkey’s fifth win in a row over Poland in major competitions since the ‘Sultans of the Net’ lost to the White-and-Reds in the pool stage of the Baku 2015 European Games.

Kübra Akman, player of Turkey: “Of course, we are very happy to be in the final. It was a dream day with both our audience and our own performance. We made some mistakes in the third set, but we knew how to make up for these. We are very happy. Many thanks to all the supporters!

Tomorrow we expect such an atmosphere again. It will be a much harder match than this one but we will be ready for it. We made it happen today and I hope we can do the same tomorrow and become European champions on home soil.”

“Today Turkey played a very good game. Eda Erdem Dündar was great. Turkey were better than us – and they did so in every aspect of the game. Our team played the best they can. We are very happy with playing the semi in Ankara, in such an arena. The match with Italy will be a great challenge. Italy have a very complete and strong team. We will fight for every ball.”
