Türkiye has defeated the USA last night in the semifinals of the Volleyball Nations League to claim a spot in the Final against China, the winner of the other semifinal against Poland.
Daniele Santarelli’s Türkiye defeated the Americans on home court, in Arlington in four sets to grab hold of their place in the VNL 2023 Finals (1-3; 21:25, 14:25, 26:24, 25:27).
The Europeans managed to put the defeat against the Americans from the earlier rounds behind them and fully focus on what was in front of them, an opportunity to play for a major title.
Melissa Vargas continued to impress on her first tournament with Türkiye, scoring 23 points on the night, leading the “Sultans of the Net” to a win that will boost their confidence going into the CEV EuroVolley 2023.
In the other semifinal of the night, the remaining European nation in the tournament, Poland lost in straight sets to China and will now play for bronze against the Americans. Both matches are set to take place on 17 July.
