HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam failed to enter the second qualification of the World Cup after losing to Thailand in the FIVB 2018 Men’s World Volleyball Championship Zonal Qualification yesterday in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.

The Vietnamese went ahead 26-24 in the first set, but were not strong enough to maintain their lead in the second, in which they lost 18-25.

The third set saw equal score for both sides. But the Thai were more aggressive in scoring the final points, and won 25-23.

In the four sets, though the Vietnamese played hard, the Thais played harder. Their powerful volleys pushed Việt Nam into defence, before winning 25-20.

With two wins at the Southeastern Asian zone, Thailand grabbed the only berth in the next qualifier.

Earlier, Thailand beat Myanmar 27-25, 25-17, 25-22 on Friday. Việt Nam also grabbed a win of 25-20, 25-13, 25-18 over Myanmar on Saturday. — VNS
