Another dreadful performance by Japan
IMO they are completely on the wrong way. They should stick to their traditional strengths like reception, defense and quick play instead of trying to play "modern" volleyball. Come on, Japanese players will never be great backrow hitters!!!
Italy has just so many good players, it's incredible. Barcellini and Marcon are new in NT and already show very good performances on this level, also Merlo and Rondon have been doing very well today and yesterday after a not so good performance in the first match. I feel almost sorry that probably many of these players will not be in Italy's best team when Lo Bianco, Piccinini and all the rest are there
