Since then they have also been equally impressive on their way to the final. With Brazil never managing to win the coveted title, Saturday will provide them with a great opportunity to lift their maiden World Championship trophy.
Brazil’s only defeat in the tournament came in Pool D against Japan during Phase 1.
Since then the South American country has been mighty impressive in the competition as they have gone undefeated till now. They fought back from a two-set deficit in the quarterfinal to get past Japan 3-2 before seeing out Italy in the semifinals to book a final ticket.
On the other hand, Serbia have been the team of the tournament till now, as they breezed through Phase 1 and Phase 2 without any difficulty. The defending champions then had to dig deep to get past co-hosts Poland in the quarterfinals before defeating reigning Olympic champions the USA in the semifinals.
