Despite a loss to Poland, Iranian national volleyball team can still advance to the next round of FIVB World Championships.

In the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championships Iran lined up against hosts Poland Saturday and came back from two sets down only to lose the thrilling five-setter 3-2. (17-25, 16-25, 26-24, 25-19, 14-16).

The one point Iran bagged from the nail-biter means Iran are still in contention for a place in the next round of the games.

Iran will take on Serbia in their final game of the second round later on Sunday.
