Italy and China are also having a friendly match.
I watched the match.
-Both physically and mentally Lanza looks so ready! He may turn into a X factor for Italy
-Giannelli has still connection problem with Zaytsev. Some great sets, but also some inaccurate sets more than you expect from him.
-I'm sure Zaytsev has lost weight in recent weeks. He looks slimmer and physically very fit. Mentally today he wasn't there but it wasn't necessary.
-Opponent was too weak so it was very difficult to judge middle players. Anzani-Mazzone is the right combination I think.
-Osmany oh Osmany. Physically he looked better in Cuban holiday photos than today. How can a player gain weight in training camp? Today he was immobile, jumping too low , blocked like 7-8 times. Italy needs him and they only have 1 week for preparation. Blengini must do everything , maybe put him also on a diet, to gain better form.
-They should have selected a better opponent for the last matches. Maybe not an A team but at least Slovenia, Belgium level. China was too weak.
