2017 FIVB U21 World Championship | Czech Republic

First part of European qualifiers for U21 WCH in Czech Republic is over. Germany, Belgium, Serbia and Bulgaria secured spot in the next round as a group winners while Latvia and France advanced further as the best 2nd ranked teams. 3rd round of qualification will be held 18-21 May with Poland and Ukraine as group hosts. Poland will play against Germany, Belgium and Latvia while Ukraine is going to host Serbia, Bulgaria and France.

I'm quite surprised with Belgium as this generation have had poor results but new head coach, Eyckmans, made incredibile improvement. Also Latvia is pleasant surprise while Romania failed again despite having quite interesting roster.

One interesting fact for the end. Ex-Belgorod coach, Boris Kolchinss is head coach of Latvia :)

I first wanted to write that Turkeys result must be massive disappointment for them but then i checked qualification criteria:

If i see it right, Russia, Italy, Turkey and Poland will be qualified through world ranking anyway. I just wonder why, unlike Russia and Italy, Turkey and Poland are still playing qualification at all?

@Timm

Yes, Turkey already secured WCH spot based on FIVB U21 rankings. Reason for joining these qualies is they were not sure whether they are in the top six or not as rankings were published on 1st January. Poland has to play qualies as a U20 European champions :whistle:

This is one of the sentences which defines why volleyball will not get any serious popularity (meaning development, coverage, and money) any time soon.

But with China and Argentina being already qualified, they look safe for qualification over world ranking too. So what appeared to be a bad draw for the german team could actually turn out to be a good one. Always provided of course that Poland now sends a "B-team" to second round..... :whistle:
