  • i guess Bulgaria,Azerbaijan,Croatia,Ukraine,Czechia (ex-Czech R.) are main contenders


    if Rahimova plays for her country Azerbaijan has a chance to make it to the Challenger Cup of Fivb
    Vasileva is going to be absent for Bulgaria due to her injury
    Fabris is playing for Croatia but i dont know how good the others are in the team
    Czechia doesnt seem to have great players
    i guess Ukraine is playing with its best lineup.They can make it also

  • Croatia is nothing special. We are very very tall team and we are Playing very slow volleyball from attack to defence. I was surprised by Dinka Kulic She had very good reception and attack, and She wasn't starter from start. Like I said Martina Samadan is great MB she needs to play in strong league she deserve it.
    Mia Jerkov is hear and Ivana Milos they can help.



    I can imagine how diffrent for Fabris is to play that fast volleyball with Imoco than you play so slow volleball with NT. Brcic has very good connection with MBs and that is why she is 191cm, but for OHs and OPP She is not doing anything special

  • I'm watching HUN-FRA for whatever reason and I have a genuine question: how is France still not able to put together a decent team? Do they really not invest in female volleyball all that much?

  • i watched a little from Slovakia-Belarus and the level of that match was better than this match


    Albania beat Georgia 3-0 ..ive never watched any of these teams so far..wonder what makes Albani better than Gerorgia so that they won 3-0

    I've been asking myself the very same question, especially considering they have a fairly strong domestic league :white:

  • I just saw that Hungary's starting OPP Szedmak is only 16 years old (born September 2001) :what:


    She performed very well and not at all like a 16 year old girl, I'd never have estimated her being that young :white: Knowing this I think she's a great prospect.

  • I've been asking myself the very same question, especially considering they have a fairly strong domestic league :white:


    Yeah, that's exactly why! No disrespect to them whatsoever, but they seem like an amateur team. Plenty of teams without a league as strong as the French one are still able to beat them fairly easily, like Hungary just did.
    Sure French league is filled with foreigners, but still...
