Turkey ends set 16 - 25 with a block. Yigit Gülmezoglu was the top scorer of the set with 8 points.

 

Third set's start was a fierce battle from the beginning. Emotions were running high and Turkey got a yellow card at 8 - 8 after coach Nedim Özbey protested to the referee.

“This match and the victory were a dream way to end this section of the European Championship at home. We did not really focus on the fact that Turkey had beaten Russia earlier in the tournament; we just wanted to play our own game and I think you can agree that we have raised the level of our performance with each match. Now we go to Poland and we want to win at least one more game there!”
