The US Beats Argentina to Continue Their Domination at 2022 Volleyball Nations League

They cemented their status as one of the front-runners for the title with a dominant victory against Argentina. Argentina and United States met up in Osaka, Japan on Sunday, and the winner was tough to call until the very end. The use eventually managed to score a 3-2 victory in five sets, winning 29-27, 22-25, 20-25, 25-13, 17-15. Outside hitter TJ Defalco is one of the players responsible for this win, after managing to produce a total of 28 points for his team. “I am happy that everyone who is here witnessed a good fight… We are really happy to win four in four; it was a team effort all the way around for this week and I’m just happy for the team. The big word now is REST!” said Defalco after the match.
