Following on from Thursday’s victory, the Polish team did it once again to beat Olympic champions the following day, although with greater difficulty.

After three sets Russia was in the lead 2-1, with the match won by the Poles only after a hotly contested tie-break.

“We won a very important game. Even though the win came only after a tiebreaker, it’s an important victory and we’re very happy about it. I’d like to thank the fans, who packed the hall and supported us,” Polish capitain Michał Kubiak said after the match.
