There are many great volleyball matches that noone has ever seen. There are some that lots of people have seen. The greatest match of all time is at best a subjective exercise and there is obviously no definitive answer.
Having said all that, the best match of all time is still the Netherlands – Italy Olympic final from 1996. Two star packed teams, both at the absolute peak of the powers, playing at their best form. You can count the unforced errors on one hand. Oh, the stories I have heard about this match that I would love to write (but won’t). Needless to say, but just in case, the Olympic final next year will, with 100% certainty, NOT be as good as this match.
