Gift from Alekno - only a man who didn't watch the match could say that. They were very angry when they lost and they played with desire to win, it was obvious.
I don't need to explain about the players, these are the ones that brought us to semifinas in 4 consecutive finals. Sokolov had good success with Cuneo, as a main reason for Champions League final and MVP of supercup vs Macerata with Trentino, before getting lower as game in the past 6 months. Yosifov was best blocker in Serie A1, got cup in Germany, always plays top level for the NT. Skrimov - ask the specialists. They all love him.
Aleksiev and Todorov were the players who won us the game with France that sent us to the Olympics. Todorov can easily block more than 10 times in any match even againt Muserskiy or Pavlov, as he did in Russian championship and in our NT but he should play. Placi didn't use him much. This will change with Konsttanitnov.
P.S. Players are not top because they win trophies, they win trophies because they are top players in a top team. Show me a title won by one or two players in an average team.
