Wallace’s farewell results in a bronze medal for Brazil at FIVB Volleyball World Championship

FIVB World Championship wallace bronze

In what was almost certainly Wallace De Souza’s final ever match while wearing the jersey of the Brazilian national team, he led his team to a bronze medal at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2022. This was Brazil’s sixth consecutive medal and seventh overall in the annals of the sport’s most prestigious competition.

The 35-year-old opposite player, who came out of retirement to assist Brazil at this tournament, was successful in achieving his goal by leading the team to a 3-1 victory over Slovenia in the bronze medal match on Sunday in Katowice (25-18, 25-18, 22-25, 25-18). The match was played for the bronze medal.

The star player, who is now 35 years old, guides his team to victory over Slovenia.

The final match of the World Championship is about to take place at the sold-out Spodek Arena. The gold medal match is scheduled to begin at 21:00 local time and will feature Poland as the hosts competing against Italy.

The highest point total of the match was 22 points, which Wallace delivered

Including two aces during the fourth set and the winning point. A total of 19 of his spikes were successful, giving him a success rate of 58% in the attack. Yoandy Leal, an outside hitter, contributed another 19 points to the victory, and Lucas Saatkamp, a middle blocker, raised as many as five kill blocks and fired three aces to contribute 12 points to the match total. Stern, who played on the opposite side of Toncek, was Slovenia’s leading scorer with 17 points to his name.


Stern aced the ball to put them ahead at 9-8, and then pounded the next point from the back row, before setter Dejan Vincic finished off an extremely lengthy rally startling his opponents with a hit on two for 11-8. This five-point run saw Slovenia take a 12-8 lead in the first set.

That Slovenian advantage, however, did not stay for very long as Brazil responded quickly with an incredible seven-point series on Lucas’s turn to serve, which was garnished with a couple of aces (15-15 and 17-15) on the route to opening up an 18-15 lead against Slovenia. Bruno Rezende, a substitute setter and captain, and Leal, a libero, also scored points for Brazil from the serving line toward the end of the set (21-17 and 24-18), and then Flavio Gualberto’s monster block brought the set to a successful conclusion for Brazil at 25-18.

After falling behind by two points early in the second set, Slovenia caught up on an ace served by Vincic to tie the score at 5-5 and remained competitive until the score reached 10-10. Brazil took the lead for good after scoring three straight points on substitute outsides served by Adriano Cavalcante, and they never looked back. Because Leal was the driving force behind the South American offense, they were able to maintain control throughout the set and increase their lead to 25-18 by the time it was over.

Brazil’s first three break points for 2-0, 4-1, and 6-3 were delivered by big blocks by Lucas, while Slovenia’s first break point was brought on by an ace by middle Alen Pajenk (4-3). Bruno’s direct serving point made it 11-5 in favor of Brazil, and just as it looked like the South Americans would win the match in three sets, Slovenia got up, dusted themselves down, and staged an astonishing comeback. The score was tied at 15-15 after a run of five straight points that included another ace from Pajenk and an off-the-block strike from Stern.

The Europeans took the lead at 17-16 after a Leal attack went out of bounds, and middle Jan Kozamernik increased the margin to 18-16 with an overpass kill. Lucas’ ace briefly made the score 18-18, but Stern responded with his own ace to give Slovenia a two-point advantage (22-20) once more. Finally, Tine Urnaut, the captain, slammed the 25-22 winning shot after outside Klemen Cebulj skillfully tipped to bring set point at 24-21.

With a 4-0 run, Slovenia dominated the fourth set, but Brazil quickly responded to pull even at 4-4. Wallace quickly gave Brazil the lead with an ace to make the score 6-5. Wallace struck another ace and added a back-row hit for a score of 16-11 right after Lucas made a huge block to make the score 14-11. The epilogue featured Wallace once more. With a pipe shot, he himself converted match point for a score of 25-18 after bringing it in with a sharp-angle hit for 24-18. The goal was accomplished!
