The Iranian volleyball team has edged past world champion Poland in a Pool B match of the 2015 FIVB World League.

Iran won the first set of the match 25-21 but failed to keep up with the good work and lost the second and third sets 25-23 and 25-21, respectively.

In the fourth set, however, with massive support from the stands Iranians pummeled Poland 25-16 and set the match up for the tiebreaker round, in which the Asian giants downed their opponents 15-11.

The Iranian volleyballers will take on Poland once again at the Azadi stadium on Sunday.
