Can't remember when I saw such monster performance in youth categories (since Andres Villena's 44 pts in FIVB Youth Championship finals against Serbia in 2011) :obey: 46 points (!) scored by German OPP Linus Weber against Italy is the best individual effort I've seen since following youth competitions. Out of 82 balls Weber killed 45 :cheesy: :obey: Unfortunately this wasn't enough for Germany to book ticket to Hungary and Slovakia this April. Stunning performance :obey:

Along Germany Serbia also didn't make it what is consenquence of weird qualification system. In pool H there were only 3 teams so rankings in all groups were determined after deducting points against last placed teams in other groups.

German team missed ECH by overall 5 Ball points :wall: . Czech team got lucky, as their loss to last placed Latvia was not counted/deducted. Very cruel, as it also means no chance for WCH qualification.

Personally, I only watched the match against Ukraine and even though the opponent was not very strong, you could already see that Linus Weber is a real good prospect. And he proved my first impression in the match vs. Italy. It is reported that Vital Heynen was very impressed too.
I hope the guys can bounce back towards U20 competitions. Generally i am convinced that the guys have the level to do well there.

Yes, very cruel towards Germans but CEV is brilliant again. Don't know how they couldn't find 4th team for group in Austria. Bigger problem IMHO is that all the groups are adapted to one, which was really poor overall with Finland as only "serious" team. Austria was the last on MEVZA championship while Norway was 4th in NEVZA. They should expand number of teams on Finals to get bigger quality

It is really a shame that Germany didn't manage to qualify, I'm sorry for them, they were a really good team.

CEV is dominating again :obey: :aww:

Here we have a large discrepancy with the groups when it comes to quality :aww: in pool I u have EEVZA champion and vicechampion (Poland, Russia), WEVZA winner and 3rd placed team (Italy, Belgium), Bulgaria as Balkan vicechampion and Hungary as MEVZA champions. In pool II are Czechs (2nd in MEVZA) and Slovakia which was 5th on MEVZA championship, 3rd & 5th on Balkan championship (Turkey, Bulgaria), France was 5th on WEVZA while Finland didn't compete at all :rolll: This doesn't make sense at all ?(

For me this is outrageous :mad: Teams from pool II won't stand a chance in semifinals so I'm pretty sure the new champion will be from pool I :whistle:
