And in the brief clip about Germany they mentioned as the best players Kromm, Bohme, Huebner, in the last place Shoepps and they forgot to add Grozer. And when summing up the Slovenian team they said: "Players like Urnaut or Gasparini aren't very popular for the volleyball world but the team can make some surprises". :aww:
Also every clip of a team was made by some match of this team against Bulgaria. Because some of the teams, like Finland, played their last game against us in 2007 - the clip was compiled of the Finnish NT in 2007. Only Serbia and Italy's clips were compiled of the match Serbia - Italy in WC 2011. The same match for both of the clips. Slovenia's clip was the most bizarre, because we haven't played against them in a non-friendly match for ages and the clip was like from youtube, in 240 pixels. :lol:
If I would be there, I would be the one laughing the loudest :rolll: Amusing!

Tunisia 3 - Cameroon 1

Tunisia is in OG.
Wow, before this tournament I was pretty sure that Egypt qualify. I know not much about Tunisia, but anyway - big congrats!

Long Beach, USA, February 27, 2012 – Long Beach, California will be the setting for the NORCECA Men’s Continental Olympic Qualification Tournament from May 7 to 12, marking the first time a NORCECA Olympic qualifier has been held in USA.

The winner of the eight-team event will earn a spot at the London 2012 Olympic Games later this year and the hosts will be looking to use their home advantage against teams from Cuba, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.

“USA Volleyball is extremely proud and excited to be hosting the 2012 NORCECA Men’s Continental Olympic Qualification Tournament and we intend to put on a first-rate event, both for the competing teams and the fans who attend the matches,” USA Volleyball chief executive officer Doug Beal said. “We will be looking for support from the US volleyball community not only for fan attendance, but also for volunteers and fund raising. This is one of the most significant events ever played in the United States, and it is a great opportunity to support our men’s team in its quest to qualify for London and defend its Olympic title from Beijing.”

“We are pleased to be hosting the NORCECA Men’s Continental Olympic Qualifier and look forward to competing against the other teams from our zone in front of our friends, family and fans,” USA coach Alan Knipe added. “We are looking forward to a great competition.”

My guess is that the tournament will still be held in Italy or Germany, but Serbia would replace them as the "host team".
