Lausanne, Switzerland, July 5, 2017 - Defending FIVB World League
champions take on USA Wednesday in Curitiba in a rematch of the 2008 final which saw the Americans prevail 3-1 at the Maracanazino. USA need to win this one to stay alive in the race for the
semifinals, after suffering a tie-break defeat in the hands of France on
Tuesday. A win by Serbia means the Americans crash out of the
competition and the Balkan side together with France advance to the
semifinals. On the other hand, a clear win for three points by USA sees
the North Americans secure their ticket to the top four.
