Team USA to meet VNL leader Turkey in women's volleyball


The United States' women's volleyball team, led by Andrea Drews, will meet Turkey on Tuesday in Jiangmen, China in a repeat of last year's Volleyball Nations League final.

Last year’s final in Nanjing saw Team USA come back twice as they lost the first set 25-17 and the third set 28-26 to claim the inaugural title in five sets.

The USA-Turkey matchup will be the first VNL fixture to have been played four times, with all three previous VNL encounters between these sides played in five sets, with the European squad always winning the first set.

USA are tied with Italy, China and Poland in number of wins after suffering their second defeat in this year’s VNL against Brazil in a four-setter, while Turkey is on the top spot with eight victories in nine matches.
