Janus is looking forward to an epic battle at his position in the upcoming match against the USA in the quarterfinals. One of the best fighters in the world, Micah Christensen, will be pitted against you. – The fight with Christensen is a big challenge for me. As a whole team it will be difficult to play against a team like USA. Then out game And training is given to go out and play against such volleyball players.

Will serve be key to reaching the semi-finals? “Continuity is important here”

What was the main reason for the victory against the US? It is not difficult to identify an advantage in the service sector as a first impression. – We played well against Tunisia and we managed to knock them out of the net. Continuity is key here because I think we’re confident in this element. And in today’s volleyball matches with the biggest rivals, service will always play an important role. Without this, with the Americans or a team like ours, it would be impossible to win, so there would be a lot at stake on both sides. They are very nice. When they get the ball right, they are unstoppable and play very patiently with more balls. They have many advantages, but we have everything to win with them – said Janusz, a key player in the puzzle of Nikola Grbyk’s coach.

– I hope we have already shown in this competition that we can reach this very high level. Americans are having a bit of trouble right now, but it’s not worth watching. They are still a classy team with many great volleyball players. The meeting we won with them in the group doesn’t make sense now. We proved that we can beat the best and win, but this will not change in the quarter-finals. They will want to pay back and we will have a good continuity. And in the end it all comes down to volleyball – explained Dhruva.

Long break before the most important game – good or bad? Janus didn’t want to think about it

The Poles have a long gap until the quarter-finals with the Americans – they have two full days left, but they have four days in total. – We will prepare tactically for the meeting, we will carefully analyze what they have done before and what they usually do. We still have some exercises to do. Do breaks help or hinder us? In general we play often and now some people say it is good. Others say it’s better to have a beat now than to wait until now. The break is very useful, but we think the day can be played earlier. However, we don’t want to focus on how the tournament schedule looks like because each team is very similar. We are playing, it is not time to think about what is around, but about playing – succinctly said Marcin Janusz.

Kickoff for the Poland-USA quarterfinal is scheduled for Thursday, September 8 at 9 p.m. Earlier, at 5:30 PM, the winners of Serbia vs Argentina and Brazil vs Iran clashed. Tuesday will be held at the Arena Clewis. Live coverage on and LIVE app.
