Firszt led Poland with 17 points, including 15 attacks and two aces. His team-mate Artur Slugocki made 15 points, outscoring Mexico’s best scorer Diego Gonzalez Castaneda who tallied 13 points.

Poland started off with a winning performance in the opening set, but Mexico played better defence and attack that resulted to an extended second set. At 27-all, Poland finally managed to convert points from their two attacks to close the set in their favour. Mexico continued to challenge the European side in the third set and their 23-21 lead prompted Poland to call a timeout, which delivered a positive result, as Poland scored the final four points to secure the straight-set win.
