I have a question. As far as I remember The Nederlands finished 6th in the EC 2007, one place in front of Italy, and now I see that Italy is directly qualified? Why? The first six and the host country I think should be directly qualified.

Ok, so it was my mistake, but I don't know I had the feeling that Italy is 7th, but anyway it is stupid decision set ratio to be considered, because every team got used to the point ratio and I really think that point ratio is much more important and more fair.

First 4 places in Pool E
1. Spain
2. Serbia
3. Germany
4. Netherlands

First 4 places in Pool F
1. Russia
2. Finland
3. Italy
4. Bulgaria

3 teams from Pool E + 3 teams from Pool E. The Netherlands was on 4th place so thats why they didn't get qualify.

I like more CEV's rules than FIVB's because for me is more important how many sets teams won than how many points in sets they scored.

I don't know, maybe, in the beggining I also didn't approve this rule, but I don't know, but still winning the match is more important.

And last 4 matches of 1st round:
EXYR of Macedonia - Cyprus 3:0 (25:15 25:16 25:17)
Israel - Moldavia 3:1 (23:25 25:19 25:15 25:21)
Romania - Luxembourg 3:0 (25:16 25:18 25:20)
Azerbaijan - Albania 3:1 (20:25 25:18 25:19 25:22)

Great Britain, Montenegro, Macedonia, Sweden, Israel, Romania, Azerbaijan qualified for 2nd round.

A very tough round-robin expected in Poland
The clash between the two pre-favorite teams will kick off the 2nd Qualification Round - Pool F – for next year’s Men’s Senior European Championships which will be staged in Olsztyn, Poland, this week.

The hosts will try to make a great spectacle against Montenegro, which after the partition from Serbia stands as the 'youngest child' within the CEV family. These two teams have a great chance to finish 1st or 2nd respectively – thus moving to the next round - but Estonia and Hungary won't be underdogs for sure.

Pawel Zagumny, setter of the Polish National Team, reveals that it should be a vital moment for his team: 'We will participate in the Olympic Qualifications, so such tournaments, like here and the return in Estonia, should make us stronger. We will have many occasions to win official matches and to make new tactical experiments'. His team-mate from Mlekpol AZS Olsztyn, Marcin Mozdzonek, who plays as a middle-blocker, predicts a hot month for the Polish National Team: 'Raul Lozano will surely have a big problem with choosing the right roster for the Olympic Qualifications and also for the Olympics. I don't believe we won't go to Beijing in August'.

This is the first time for Montenegro and Estonia to compete in the Urania Hall. As for Hungary, it will be the second visit in this arena. Last time they played in Urania against Denmark, Poland and Russia in 1997.

For Polish the supporters it will be a very solemn moment, because the Men’s European Championships 2009 Qualification Tournament serves also as the 6th edition of the Wagner's Memorial – a tribute to the best Polish coach ever, who died in 2002. With him at the helm, the Polish National Team won the World Championship in 1974 and the Olympic Tournament two years later.

Matches in Olsztyn will be seen by 2,000 spectators from many cities in Poland. A number of them will also participate in the Polish National Championships in grass volleyball. This competition will be held on the fields close to the Urania Hall.

So, after 25th september the 6 top teams will qualify (according to me it will be Slovakia, France, Nethelrands, Belgium, Bulgaria, Poland) for the European Championship joining Turkey (the host country), Spain, Russia, Serbia, Finland, Germany, Italy. Then, later in the year, 3 more second-ranked teams out of 6 in the 6 pools wil qualify for the European Championship 2009.
