Lille, France, July 6, 2018 - Hosts France go for their 15th win in
their 18th match of this FIVB Volleyball Nations League - but it's the
most crucial game thus far, when they take on USA in Saturday's first
semifinal in Lille. The two teams meet for the 34th time in history,
with USA leading the series 20-13. But
France beat USA in five sets in VNL pool play last month in Modena, in a
match where the Americans punched their ticket to the finals with the
point they took from their two sets.
