    Well...for sure Brazil will be the favourite, but don't let us out...Italy is one of the favourites and we have some really good players...


    Italian team is the following:


    Corna (Foppapedretti Bergamo), Stufi e Carocci (Magic Pack Cremona), Padua (Monteschiavo (Jesi), Manfredini (Unikom Sassuolo), Okaka (Lamaro Roma), Di Crescenzo (Vigolzone Piacenza), Lo Cascio (Gaiga Verona), Malvestito (Riso Scotti Pavia), Strobbe (Novello Vicenza), Bosetti (Amatori Orago), Astarita (Seagrossi Urbino)


    in this article http://www.volleyball.it/leggi.cfm?art=25385 it says that italians were going to China to prepare.. any news on how they played with China ??

  • Don't you think that the pools are a not equal?


    I mean the rule that who helds has to be a seed is a lot stupid IMO


    In the first group there aren't great many teams IMO, whilst in the other all together Ukraine, Brazil, Italy...don't know if I forgot somebody though

    Star players of the tournament are Brazil's Natália Pereira but mainly Ukraine's Nataliya Goncharova who has scored 144 points in 5 matches, that means an average of 29 points per match (they played 22 sets, so 6.5 points per set). She also leads the rankings of best spiker with clearly over 50% successful spikes and blocker ranking with 1.13 blocks per set. She is also a decent receiver so she will be one of the future stars in international volleyball. There are rumors that she wants to get Russian citizenship (she plays for Dinamo Moscow) to play in Russian NT.

  • Ukraine was in the much harder of the two pools. They lost against Brazil and very unluckily in 5th set against Japan who is in semifinal instead. Nataliya Goncharova is an amazing player, I saw her in ECH last year. I'm a little bit disappointed of Olga Savenchuk's performance, she already played for Ukraine senior NT with 16 years but she doesn't perform well in this tournament.

  • it's a pity for Nataliya Goncharova .No ranking for her as best player.Her stat. record end before semi-final.If UKR went to semi-final round ,she should be as best scorer and might be best blocker .( best players only select from 4 team in semi)
