Isabelle Haak is one of the best players in the tournament so far and will try to break the 120 points barrier during today’s game.

Netherlands wins against Sweden: 4 wins out of 5 matches for NED team
The first match of the day in Cluj-Napoca was a great showcase of volleyball by both teams involved: the Netherlands and Sweden. A very balanced game at first, with Sweden led by Isabelle Haak and the Netherlands by Anne Buijs, both teams tried new ways of attacking as there was no pressure going forward. A better defence helped the Netherlands obtain the first set of the match.The second set of the match was a cat-and-mouse display as none of the teams wanted to let go of any point. A super series of spikes by Isabelle Haak has seen Sweden take the lead. However, team Netherlands did come from behind and won the second set. In the third set, team Netherlands pressed the action button and quickly finished Sweden off 25-13, leaving Romania for the final phase with 4 wins out of 5 matches.
