After a good performance against Serbia, confidence increased, and against Germany, the Red Dragons secured their first European Championship win.
This is true, as was clear from the Belgians’ torrid start. Both offensively and defensively – although they were not very strong – everything went almost perfectly.
Desmet, Deroo and Reggers enjoyed D’Hulst’s pace. Germany did nothing in return, except for several service errors and poor receptions.
And so the Dragons hit the volley on the cloud for a 2-0 lead. It all went well, as a great point by Sam Dero proved on the way to a big difference.
After losing in two sets, the German national coach decided to intervene decisively. He threw the second playmaker. A change that would be decisive.
Because Johannes Telle did not care much about the plow, which rotated directly and oiled the machine. Through his bold choices, he introduced a lot of variety and speed into the Germans’ playing style, who were suddenly able to hold their own defensively again.
The Red Dragons are no longer running out, under or through good opposition defense and cutting their teeth into obvious gaps. A tiebreaker turned out to be inevitable.
The Belgians had the upper hand early, but they lost control Money time Victory eluded them again. Key striker Georg Grozer has unlocked a wealth of experience at the age of 38 and has led his team forward.
Thus, Belgium suffers a painful blow. There is no first win and the possibility of a third place in Group A, but there is a slim point and a combination of matches against Estonia and Switzerland next week.
