History on the line for Poland

June 28, 2005 World number seven and current Pool C leaders Poland head to Argentina (ranked eighth in the world) for two matches, which they will no doubt prefer to be playing elsewhere.

After 10 matches of the highest quality where they have record seven victories and three defeats, Poland must now record just one victory against the South Americans but that is easier said than done in front of many gazing Argentinean eyes.

So far, Argentina have split both their contests with Serbia and Montenegro and Greece while playing at home but as the Intercontinental Round has continued, the South Americans have developed into an impressive unit, one which will not let their fans down without giving a fight.

The earlier match between these two sides in the opening round saw Poland defeat Argentina twice at home 3-1 (25-20, 23-25, 25-23, 25-23) and 3-1 (19-25, 25-22, 25-21, 25-22) and the way Poland is playing at the moment, they are hot favourites to claim the one victory they need and guarantee a top-four finish in the World League for the first time.

First match between Argentina and Poland starts at 00:00 GMT (21:00 local time) on Friday, with the second on Sunday at 21:00 GMT (18:00 local time).
