The main roster is the same as 2014 U19 ACH.
Wang Yun-lu who thought to be strongest isn't in.
Both Kossanyiova and Vanzurova playing very well in attack They just need a strong blocker, Trnkova was invisible in the 1st match and she got substituted.
Three silly errors by Czech Republic
China U20 3-1 Czech Republic Senior [25-20,18-25,29-27,25-23]
C.R played very well, actually much better than I expected, only a bunch of errors in critical moments had screwed them. Havlickova was missed quite much especially when Havelkova got exhausted from hitting a lot, Vanzurova played good overall but she's not ready to play starter as OPP.
Well, despite the loss I found some positive aspects from Czech Republic. Sajdova has become a better slider and the connection between she and Vincourova has developed. Kossanyiova got better both in attack and reception under Parisi's coaching, although she got substituted in the 3rd set.
IMO, Vincourova should be starter since she has better connection with the attackers, especially with Havelkova and Sajdova. Dostalova was pretty okay overall however whenever she gets targeted by the opponents, her reception gets extremely shaky, so she definitely needs some help. I don't know if Jasova will get coming back to NT for ECH, but I hope so.
Russia starts with Kosianenko-Obmochaeva-Pasynkova-Ilchenko-Lyubushkina-Fetisova-Malova. I like their new jersey.
I need to catch up on volleyball.
Anyways Russia defeated Israel - 25:11, 25:14, 25:13
