Slovenian men's team these days, paying a short preparatory tournament in the Netherlands, which has so far played two games with their team as a preparation for pre-qualification tournament for the London Olympics to be held in Osijek from 22 and 26 November.
The first match on Saturday, they played in Amsterdam, the Slovenians get a quite impressive with 3:1 (17:25, 25:18, 28:26, 25:21). Despite only average, are of particular Slovenes winning point in the attack and block, where they won 14 points, but the best was Šket with 18 points and captain Urnaut with 14 points. Netherlands played most of the game with the following names: Robert Horstink, Jeroen Trommel, Wytze Kooistra, Rob Bontje, Niels Klapwijk and Yannick van Harskamp. Jeroen Rauwerdink missing due to a broken finger.
The second match of our play today in what Wijchenu before 1200 spectators. Coach Edwin Benne began the game with Yannick Harskamp, Niels Klapwijk, Lars Lorsheijd, Wytze Kooistra, Robert Horstink, Jelte Moon and Gijs Jorna at the libero position. The coach also brought Nimir Abdelaziz, Tony Krolis and captain Rob Bontje during the competition in the field. This time they were the best hosts that match get the same result 1:3 (16:25, 22:25, 31:29, 23:25). Our sins are much more, especially at the beginning, while the coach also much more rapidly changed, as they played almost all the National Teams. Perhaps we could also pull out the fifth set, as in the fourth, when they blew Ropret and Sket, has led to the 23:22, but at the end are just glorified home. Most of the time points collected Gasparini (14), slightly less Čebulj (11) and ten in Šket and Urnaut.

"Otherwise, tomorrow will be another opportunity for our young team to play a good game again with quality opponents," he said in Wijchenu Sattler.
