If it's futball (aka soccer), I'd bet on France. But, since it's volleyball, I'm betting on the U.S.

France is ranked higher than the United States at number 3 in the world and France is also the defending VNL
champion. The United States is ranked at number 6.

Oh...and just to clarify, this game which will be played on July 8 in Los Angeles (Anaheim to be exact) is not the championship game. This is still pool play but both teams could very well make it to final round and possibly even the championship game which will be played in Gdańsk, Poland. The Volleyball Nations League is played in 7 cities in 7 countries across the world.

Each play is different from the previous ones.

I still bet on the U.S. for this coming playoff in Anaheim.

I like how some players jump and others spike from another
part of the net. Very tricky but nice strategy. Those guys are
so tall, fast, and spike very hard.

The U.S. womenís volleyball team is very strong and I think they could go all the way to win the championship, but yes, the menís team could beat France. After all, last year during the championship, it took all 5 sets for France to beat the United States. France was also the champion gold medal winner during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics played in 2021. Whatís interesting is that during that Olympics they were one of the weaker teams. I mean you have four powerhouses in Russia, Brazil, Italy, and Poland. Nobody expected France to beat any of those teams in the knockout stage. Furthermore, the United States also beat France 3-0 during that Olympics in the pool play with France barely making to the knockout stage with 3 losses and 2 wins.

No matter who wins itís going to be a very good game on July 8 between the United States and France.

Yes, unless youíre playing the libero position, volleyball, especially pro volleyball, is a tall peopleís game. But then, this guy came along and change everything and all the volleyball experts just scratch their heads. But then again, Yuji Nishida is THE EXCEPTION, NOT THE RULE.
