Match Report

Croatia cannot do much against France's grit

Article 5 September 2021

After a day off, France returned to the court in Pool D to meet Croatia. The players around Emanuele Zanini struggled to find a weapon against the skillset of the reigning Olympic champions, who left the court with a clean 3-0 victory.

 

France took an early lead, and their advantage continued to grow during the set. Setter and team captain Benjamin Toniutti, demonstrated once again his excellence, often leaving his attackers against a single block.

 

Similarly to the first set, France took off early on and never looked back. With an amazing 80% efficiency on attack, France sealed another set with a 25-16 score.

 

France’s star players Toniutti, Ngapeth and Patry were given a rest in the third set by head coach Bernardo Rocha De Rezende. This brought some intrigue to the game, but substitutes Brizard, Faure and Louati rose to the occasion and after a tight end, Brizard ended the set 26-24 with an ace.

 

Despite his absence in the third set, Jean Patry remained France’s top-scorer with 13 points. Croatia’s opposite Leo Andric showed a good performance, being the only one in his team to reach double digits with 16 points (+11).

“Today we played our game, with seriousness but also with pleasure. Having fun is important for us, it is our characteristic. If we want to play well, we need to have fun and take pleasure in every point.”

Jean Patry
Opposite of France

“I think we showed good Volleyball in some moments, and proved that we can play against a team like France as well. Some of our players got rest before important matches ahead, but we have many younger players and for them, it’s a great experience to play against Olympic champions.”
