June 1. Baku. The Palace of sports. 135 spectators.

Let us forgive the Norwegians, but their volleyball team in the world ranking is approximately the same position as football in Papua New Guinea. This is reflected here in Baku, where scandinavi, never falling on the final stages of the European Championships, not to mention the world, before he was defeated by “dry” on the parties by the Azerbaijanis and the Netherlands, not even stepping in any of the sets 15-point milestone. And the first of them Norwegians lost in the overall balance of game points 31:75, and the second, 38:75. Therefore, no one could not think that, in spite of a very painful defeat at pale the game a day earlier, our team from the hosts, the Ukrainians will be some complications in the match with skandinavii. However, having a huge superiority in skill and experience, Ukrainian women tamed daring the opponent to overcome.

Immediately it should be noted that Norway in this match scored eight more points than in their previous meetings combined. And not only exceeded in two batches of 20-point barrier, but even one dared to win. Undoubtedly, her volleyball players need to be commended for their fighting spirit, which, by the way, again clearly not enough for our athletes.

In the opening launch party, the wards of coach of the national team of Ukraine Garia Egiazarov, among which on this day did not go out to the Playground the leaders of diagonalize Olesya Ryhlyuk and center Iryna Trushkina (“basis” replaced respectively Anastasiya Chernukha and Inna Molodtsova), it’s obvious. still not recovered from yesterday’s fiasco and remind their pale shadows. This reconcentrate led to the fact that the supply Central locking opponents, Kjersti Nerval lost 0:4, and by the first technical timeout with 3:8. The benefit of this vis-a-vis Norway Svetlana Dorsman initial bumps with the finishing of partners transformed the score 10:8 in our favor. After this revival Ukrainka began to create a gap of four to six points and kept that advantage until the end of the exercise.

Winning the first game, our team entered a strange state grogg. To equal 7:7 it something else more or less worked.And here again he hatches a shot of the two main sebassis on the other side of the net – most effective player of the match diagonalize Hilde Elvebakk and “second rate” Julie Mikaelsen. This tandem, not against yourself efficiently meeting the unit (this element Ukrainka for the game in General made only two “Chechenia”), just carpet-bombed our half of the court. Account in favour of Norway has grown to a difference in six points (20:14). And although the curtain set for our volleyball players managed to shrink it down to two paragraphs, it was a belated counter-argument.

Needed some urgent drastic changes in the game. And Egiazarov decides to run on a platform of fresh forces, replacing half of today’s version of “the basics”. And substitute doigralsya Tatiana Kozlova and Hope Kodola, and instead of the binder Helena Novgorodchina – Alexander Peretyatko, helped to make a breakthrough in the team’s actions. Seizing the initiative in the first technical timeouts in the third party (8:4) and fourth (8:6), Ukrainian second such minute breaks have increased breaks respectively to 16:9 and 16:10, then gave up all his strength without reserve Norwegians already looked doomed.

Yes, the Ukrainian team picked up a win over a team clearly inferior to her in class. But with this game even Ghost tours for the world finals to be seen. Because the chance of last hope lies with today’s match-up with the fearsome Dutch, from whom no mercy you have to wait…
