Fernando Kreling is a terrible leader. No wonder Brazil is down 3 pts.

Edit 4 pts.

Russia defeated Brazil 4-3 in a best-of-seven sets at the U23 Men's to book a ticket to the Finals vs Argentina. Russian players that stood out in the SF were Bogdan, 21 (OH) and Chereiskii, 22 (MB).

It's interesting to note just two years ago at the U21, Russia and Argentina met in the finals with Russia prevailing in 5 (D. Volkov was actually part of that squad, but has since moved to senior NT). If Russia wins tomorrow, we will have another new generation of Russian "golden boys" following in the footsteps of Poleteav, Vlasov, etc.

Because of injuries, timing and ... the National Games, China U23 NT in 2017 is much weaker than U21 NT in 2015 and U19 NT in 2013.
I still hope the Chinese players born in 1995 and in 1996 become stronger and the team becomes one of the strongest teams around the world.

The roster of U19 WCH 2013 (the runner-up):
S - Yu Yao-chen (senior NT), Xu Zhen-sen (U23 but weak)
OP - Tang Chuan-hang (senior NT), Wang Xiao-yong (retired for ... study?)
OH - Zhu Zhi-yuan (injured), Xia Run-tao (injured), Du Hai-xiang (senior NT but as a "second libero")
MB - Zhang Zhe-jia (injured), Li Yuan-bo (injured), Rao Shu-han (senior NT), Wang Zhao-rui (he could come but refused)
L - Zhi Jia-cheng (U23 NT)

The roster of U21 WCH 2015 (the third place):
S - Yu Yao-chen (senior NT), Xu Zhen-sen (U23 but weak)
OP - Yu Guang-hui (he could come but refused), Lin Wei-qi (weak)
OH - Liu Li-bin (senior NT), Xia Run-tao (injured), Du Hai-xiang (senior NT but as a "second libero"), Fu Hou-wen (National Games)
MB - Zhang Zhe-jia (injured), Li Yuan-bo (injured), Rao Shu-han (senior NT)
L - Zhi Jia-cheng (U23 NT)
My favourite roster of Chinese
male NT:
S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen
MB - Zhang Zhe-jia, Chen Long-hai, Geng Xin
L - Ren Qi

female NT:
S - Ding Xia, Yao Di
OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
L - Lin Li

My avatar is Jiang Chuan. I hope more persons love him.

I think every team is missing a couple players from this age group, Argentina too doesn't have the two main OHs Bruno Lima and Nicolas Lazo.

I think it's the first FIVB title for Argentina (of ANY kind).

It was about time.
