2014 FIVB World League

  • I think that except Latunov all other MB's are very talented and deserve to play in the World League. About the OH, I want to see Simeon Aleksandrov on the field, in a duo with Skrimov and with tactic that exploites extensivey the pipe attack. If Bratoev can't pass for pipes, another setter should replace him, we are not using the weapons we have that way.

  • Brazilian roster for WL:


    S: Bruninho, William, Rapha, Murilo Radke
    OPPs: Wallace, Leandro Vissotto, Théo and Rafael
    OHs: Murilo, Lucarelli, Lipe, Lucas Lóh and Maurício
    MBs: Sidão, Lucão, Éder, Isac, Gustavão, Maurício Souza and Douglas Souza
    L: Mário Junior and Felipe.


    No Dante (OH) and Alan (L); Théo (OPP) is back after a good season in UPCN and Bernardo still insists on Vissotto (OPP) and Maurício (OH). Filipe from Sada/Cruzeiro deserves that OH spot a lot more.

Good to see Kovalev in the list, i just didn't exepcted Zemchenok and Smolar ( isn't he naturalised too ? so with Pavlov ony one spot ... ). No Moroz on list the quite surprising but already explained, and i am looking forward to see the battle for OH position, Sivozhelez and Rodichev and defensive players, Biryukov, Illinykh as attackers and Spiridonov and Khtey kinda 50/50.

    YEAH! I hope to see him in the match roster :)

  • Absolutely. Filipe has played amazingly this season but still for some reason Bernardinho won't recruit him for the national team. I agree that Maurício's spot (who's been very inconsistent on Vivo/Minas) should go to him.

  • Preparing for the upcoming World League,
    Germany and Belgium just finished the third of three practice games in Belgium.

    Maybe we'll see someone in OH position play as Opp if Clark doesn't perform well :)

  • Matt Anderson was previously tested as an opposite, the last time was the Grand Champions Cup, if I am not mistaken.

    Kaliberda and Strohbach were cut from roster for weekends matches. Kaliberda isn't yet at 100 % after his injury.
    Markus Steuerwald will play libero in first match.
