It was hard to expect that the 25th representation of the FIVB ranking would cause problems for Biallo-Zeroni, so Jacek Nauruki’s players did not extend Friday’s meeting and overpowered Greece’s, who belong to one of the weakest. Teams in their group, 3-0. Once again, our undisputed captain was attacking Magdalena Stysiak, although the most difficult tests were still for the Polish women.

Looking at the list of big absentees at this year’s European Championship, what’s most striking is the lack of one of the world’s best playmakers – Joanna Wozos, the match led by Katarzyna Wienerska doesn’t look too bad. Especially as she is a player who joined the team during the Nations League matches, and presented herself on the field without any complexes. The coach, Jacek Nauruki, calms feelings and repeats all the time that the current team needs more play and experience, but he also does not want to focus on the question and return for those who have not been to Plovdiv. A lot of these girls are competing in such competitions for the first time and I don’t know how it will end. If someone tells me that it is possible to have other players, I must say frankly that I want to focus on those who are in the team now and for whom representation is important. Looking at Polish women’s volleyball, it’s good that we are here in such a group – the Polish women’s mukhtar believes.
The last training before the first match in Plovdiv, coach Nawrocki concluded with the sentence: “I want you to enjoy the game” and this seemed to be one of the main reasons for his team in the European Championship. – I would like these girls to play with a positive attitude and lightness. There will be no pressure on them, although I know that it is impossible to do sports without them. Let them treat these occupations as a pleasure and an opportunity to benefit from them. I know how they experienced some failures in the League of Nations, and they are now much richer with these experiences – says Naoruki.
And his players did not avoid problems in many events of the match with the Greek players, which, however, began with a great advantage. Only with plays debuting at the Venice European Championship did Piao Zeroni start the first set with a 7-0 lead. In the first match they only allowed their opponents to score 16 points, in the next two sets it was the Greeks who chased the score by half, playing point for point, but later it was the Poles who jumped a few points and won. The whole game. Coach Nawrocki again put the six start on Magdalena Stysiak in attack, which changed the former first player in this position – Malwina Smarzek, only during a double change, entering the field with midfielder Julia Nowicka.
The three-day marathon of Polish women playing will end with a meeting on Saturday with Czech women, which shouldn’t be a problem for the Whites and Reds. Sunday will be a rest day for Jacek Nawrocki, after which they will play their penultimate group game against the Spanish players. On Wednesday, the group struggle ends with the meeting of the Bulgarians, who are considered the strongest team in this group.
