Both teams’ journey so far in the competition has been identical, having won two and lost the other game.
New Zealand are bracing for a difficult task against tournament hosts England in women’s beach volleyball quarterfinals of the Commonwealth Games. Both teams’ journey so far in the competition has been identical, having won two and lost the other game. Besides, both sides are also heading into this match on the back of losing their last game, making it extremely difficult to call a winner in Friday night’s clash. In the other match, later in the day, defending gold medallists Canada will be facing Sri Lanka.
England started with a 2-0 victory over Solomon Islands before beating neighbours Scotland by the same scoreline. However, they lost their final group game to Vanuatu 2-0. Meanwhile, New Zealand defeated two African sides – Kenya and Ghana – in their opening fixtures before losing out to Canada in their last game. Supporters can expect to see a hardly-fought battle in this clash, as there is very little to separate both sides.
