2018 FIVB World Championship - Japan

  • De Gennaroooooo yeeesssss !!!!

  • I think Maja is MVP and Boskovic as best opposite.


    -------It's probably Boskovic with Egonu as best opposite

    Favorite players: M: Maxim Mikhaylov, Murilo, Serginho, Aaron Russell, Otavio, Simone Giannelli, Ivan Zaytsev, Tsvetan Sokolov, Michał Kubiak, Mariusz Wlazly, Pawel Zagummy W: Sheilla, Zhu Ting, Natalia, Fe Garay, Fofao, Gabi, Thaisa, Foluke Akinradewo, Wei Qiuyue, Ding Xia, Carli Lloyd, Fabi, Natalia Goncharova, Yuko Sano, Saoris Kimura and Sakoda

  • It seems bronze medalists always look happier than silver medalists:what:

    That's how it always seems to be. if you're third, your won bronze! But if you're second, you lost the gold.

  • Maja was robbed of an award. :whistle:

  • Maja and Brankica also could have gotten an award. Sylla and Malinov were worse today.


    But hey, I guess it's not that important..

  • Well done our girls, you gave your hart and everything in the final!You are our queens and heroes here in Serbia!

    A small and money poor Serbia is the world champion in front of not just volleyball powers, but also world politic and economic powers.USA, Russia, Brazil, Italy, China, Japan, they all are behind Serbia, that's really unbelievable. And now Serbia is reigning world and European champion, plus world cup and Olympic silver medalist.

    Boskovic was the best when was the most matter.But real hero of this match is Bianka Busa, everybody talked bad things about Busa, but she showed a lot of that in the final and gave her heart and more.


    Big congrats for Italy, you girls are great team and bright future is in front of you.There will be many more great volleyball battles between Serbia and Italy.

    I agree....Busa had some bad passes but any OH having to receive almost every single ball would do the same amount of mistakes. And let`s remember Busa has never been a starter...not even in this tournament ....she only got to start after Milenkovic`s injury....But still she was able to step in and handle the pressure. Without her passing Boskovic/Mihajlovic can`t get any kills.

  • I like the invidual awards, pretty fair. Except for MB.. Danessi had to get one. Setter could have gone to Maja if they wanted a serbian there

    agre with you..maybe instead of Raşiç...i thought Yan Ni deserved it..Maja could have been given but Malinov is not a bad choice as well

  • boskovic only hit diagonal today, why couldn't the block adjust to that?????



    too many errors by ITA today... very low-level performance...

    Boskovic is usually hitting diagonally, very seldom along the line - but her angles are so extreme, that these ball are extremely hard to defend.

  • I think best setter should have been Ding Xia! China was still lethal even when Zhu is not scoring.
