Poland’s Bartosz Firszt scored a match-high 19 points, then Remegiusz Kapica contributed 15 points. Ghassen Zgarni and Salem Nafetti only made seven and six points, respectively, to run the Tunisian offence. Poland contained their errors to only 14, which became key to their straight-set victory.
Poland’s go-to hitter in the first set was Firszt, who helped his team mount a big lead and opening set win against Tunisia. In the second set, Poland’s Firszt and Kapica hammered strong spikes that battered the Tunisian defence. Tunisia conceded the match, as they could not find a way to stop the Polish scoring duo.
