Volleyball players of the national teams of China and the USA will compete in the next meeting of the group stage of the OI-2020. Will the Chinese women be able to rehabilitate themselves in the United States after the shameful defeat in the duel with Turkey?
The Chinese team sensationally lost at the start of the Olympics, losing to the Turkish national team with a crushing score of 0:3. Moreover, in each of the sets, the Chinese women "flew" as if a conditional Kenyan national team was playing with the Turkish women. Whatever it was, but Turkish women and Argentines were considered the main underdogs of the group, but now everything has changed. The latter lost interrupted the winning streak of the Chinese squad, which numbered eight meetings.
The American national team prepared very well for the start of the Olympic Games, and was able to compete with the national team of Argentina, defeating their rivals with a score of 3:0. This victory was the third in a row for the team. In particular, the Americans won the League of Nations, where they defeated the Brazilian national team itself in the final, so such a local success should hardly surprise anyone against the background of how the team has been playing in the last few months.
Statistics and figures:
- The USA is the favorite of the meeting;
- China lost the last match, but won the previous 4;
- The US national team lost once in 5 games;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of China.
The Chinese national team will be able to do everything to win in the upcoming confrontation. A failed start at the OI will oblige Chinese women to play another volleyball. We all know how China can play, and, most likely, the meeting against Turkey is a ridiculous accident, for which the Chinese women will have to ask for forgiveness in front of their fans.
