what about Kurogo ? she seems to have played in the stats

I'm withholding judgement on Kurogo. I hope the best for her. She's definitely had a personal transformation--knocking Koga out of the lineup has got to be a confidence booster. I just don't see her doing anything that anybody couldn't do if you threw them the ball 60 times and would be satisfied with 20 points. Coach Nakada likes receivers. Kurogo is supposed to be a receiver but she's not doing it in this tournament. She's not very athletic--hardly gets off the ground in a back court attack--and don't get me started on floor defense. She's trying to emulate Saori Kimura's serve ... with mixed results. That could pay off over time, though.

Hey! Belgium is a good team. Argentina belongs in the special olympics.


Damn, looks like ITL v SER and BRA v CHN aren't going to show up at sportdeutschland.tv on demand. I'm bummed I missed that Brazil game.

Some rookie mistakes on both sides but this GER v BEL match is shaping up as real fun
At times it was fun, but mostly the level of the match was horrendous. It looked much more like Silver European League than like VNL at times :whistle:

Apparently Germany has some injury problems at MB position, that's why Leonie Schwertmann joined the team for this week and had to play today. No further info yet, it's just from a statement of Lenka Dürr after the match.

Plus Nizetich, possibly Castiglione if she still plays for NT, and I'm sure I forgot someone else...

Turkey should win against: South Korea - Thailand - Germany -
loose against: China - Netherlands ( but they could end up winning these 2 because CHN and NED if both teams send a B team to the final week). This should be a lock for them into the Final 6

Italy - should win against: D.Republic - Belgium - Thailand
loose against : Brazil - Netherlands ( but they could beat Brazil once they play at home and I think they can upset the Dutch this week).

Russia should win against: Poland - D.Republic - Japan
loose against: Brazil - China.

I think it comes down to Turkey and Italy. They both have 3 teams they can beat but 2 teams that they must pull a upset

She does. She moved from Sao Caetano to Brasilia for the following season. Despite being on the bottom part of last season's ranking, Brasilia will have a better roster this year.

She got married last month to Brazilian MB Milka.

Not true: http://www.somosvoley.com/notas/mimi-sos…e-la-temporada/

She's resting now but will play WCh.

Also, she played in 2017 for NT so she didn't "retire after the OG".

Well, she must have changed her mind. I remember there was a lot of press about this subject last year. It was after the qualification to the WCH.
