Kozub sets Poland one step closer to semis


Kozub with yet another one of his well-placed sets

Brno, Czech Republic, June 28, 2017 – Setter Lukasz Kozub nicely spread out Poland’s attacking options on the way to the team’s fifth consecutive victory at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship. After 3-0 (25-17, 25-22, 25-20) against Cuba, the Poles are now very close to making the semifinals.

Bartosz Kwolek was the usual suspect on top of the scorers’ chart of the match, this time with 19 points, of which three aces. His teammate Tomasz Fornal added another 12 for Poland, as many as Cuba’s most prolific player, Miguel Angel Lopez, scored for his team.

The match started well for Cuba, but between the two technical time-outs of the first set Poland took control and never let it slip away. Their setter Lukas Kozub not only delivered a lot of variety in the Polish attacks, but did it well enough for a 60% average success rate, enough to close all the sets with a comfortable margin – 25-17, 25-22 and 25-20.
