Featured Players

In the second match of Day 4 in Pool D, Latvia will meet Croatia. Fans are looking forward to a rather equal fight delivered by both teams.

Croatia were left disappointed after a 0-3 loss to Germany in their opener, and are hoping to redeem themselves in the upcoming match. Latvia, on the other hand, are looking forward to extending their good performance in the tournament. After showing a confident play and taking a surprising 3-1 win over hosts Estonia on the opening day, which also marked Latvia’s first ever win on European Championships, the team is hoping to continue their winning strike and fight for the chance to reach the next phase of the competition.

“It was an important game for us because Latvia is a direct opponent for qualifying to the second round. There were a lot of ups and downs, but we showed mental strength in crucial moments of the game, especially in the fourth set. After that, it was easy to win the fifth set.”

Leo Andric
Opposite of Croatia

“It was not the same team that was here two days ago, I know them well enough to tell that. Nothing can be taken for granted at this tournament, every win here requires great work.”
