Corrientes, Argentina, August, 23, 2015 – Germany reacted after an erratic first set and took the win against Mexico by 3-1 (26-28, 25-18, 25-15, 25-20) with high points in Maximilian Auste (18) and Tobias Krick (16). With this victory, the Germans took the 13th place in the final standings, leaving Mexico with the 14th.
Germany had it all set to take the first set, but Mexico grew stronger with Valenciano’s blocking performance and took advantage of Rauber’s absence (sprained his ankle in the first moments of the match) and kept the set it in a rush (26-28).
From that moment onwards, Germany took the lead with an active Auste and the return of a recovered Rauber, perfectly seconded by Tobias Krick’s blocking and spiking capacity. Johannes Tille jumped to the terrain and managed perfectly the reins of the European’s team offensive.
Mexico had in Erick Valenciano the top scorer of the match with 21 points, but it wasn’t enough to outscore Germany, so they kept the 14th place.
