However, Belgium won the final point to take the second set 23-25. In the 3rd set, Greece found themselves ahead 16-14 with Belgium regaining the lead 16-18 after 4 consecutive points. From that point on, Belgium did not lose their advantage and went on to win the set 22-25 and the match 0-3.

This is Greece’s first of three games in the first Eurovolley Qualifying Tournament of Pool C taking place in Kozani.
