1st set: For the second match during the World League weekend in Berlin between the Netherlands and Germany the spectators saw a different match. The Netherlands wanted to show that their loss 3:1 against Germany should not stay for a second time. They started well concentrated with powerful services and a good reception and digging. Especially Richard Schuil made 4 aces by service. So the Netherlands won the first set.
2nd set: Both teams had the same starting six for the second set. The match stayed unchanged for the German team. The Netherlands were acting perfectly and the attacks by Germany - yesterday still told as weapons by the Dutch coach Bert Goedkoop - were not efficient against libero Joost van der Hoek. Even the exchange of Ilja Wiederschein as setter for Frank Dehne and attacker Michael Mayer for Marco Liefke could not give a change for the German playing.
3rd set: Germany started better within this set and was leading 24:21 at the end of the set. But the lucky end was with the Netherlands. So the won this set and the match.
