Lausanne, Switzerland, July 6, 2017 - Defending FIVB World League
champions Serbia are with their back against the wall Thursday in
Curitiba when they take on the 2015 champions France. USA qualified from
this pool after beating Serbia on Wednesday, so the Balkan side now
need a win for three points to knock out France and make the semifinals.
It is the 22nd time the two teams come head-to-head in the history of
the World League, with Serbia leading the series 12-9.
