WCH 2022 M: Super-Italy smashes Slovenia, will play for gold after more than two decades.

A super-Italy smashed Slovenia and made it through to the final of the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship against Poland, tomorrow at 9 p.m. local time.

Italy played another great match at the World Championship 2022. The guys commanded by the coach Ferdinando De Giorgi overtook Slovenia in Katowice, Poland, 3-0 (25-21, 25-22, 25-21) and reached the final of the competition. The ‘Azzurri’ dominated Slovenia, who had never really worried the European champions, in this semi-final. Since 1998, Italy hasn’t reached the final in World Champs, and during these 24 years hasn’t won a single medal. So, they at least broke one spell, given they’re guaranteed a silver medal.
