Giani selected 23 players for the upcoming VNL tournament:
Lukas Kampa (J. Wegiel), Adam Kocian (United Volleys), Tomas Kocian (Düren), Jan Zimmermann (Maaseik)
Christian Fromm (J.Wegiel), David Sossenheimer (Friedrichshafen), Moritz Karlitzek (United Volleys), Denys Kaliberda (Modena), Ruben Schott (Gdansk), Moritz Reichert (Berlin), Tim Peter (Herrsching)
Markus Böhme (Olympiacos P.), Noah Baxpöhler (Lüneburg), Anton Brehme (VCO Berlin), Jacob Günthör (Friedrichshafen), Tobias Krick (United Volleys), Lukas Maase (Düren), Louis Kunstmann (VCO / United Volleys)
Simon Hirsch (Milano), Christoph Marks (Ortona), Linus Weber (VCO / BR Volleys)
Julian Zenger (United Volleys), Ivan Batanov (VCO Berlin)
Grozer will skip VNL but he will join the team later towards ECH. Other names missing are Friedrichhafen's Phillip Collin and Daniel Malescha who probably both declined invitation.
There is a rich choice beween many decent OHs, albeit no one actually represents (yet?) real worldclass. But still It will be a tough job for Giani to find the best working pairing.
It will be interesting too, which setter will be selected for the spot behind Kampa. Tomas Kocian played a very good season in Düren and imo deserves a chance to play in VNL. Zimmermann will have to do well when he gets a chance, in order to keep his place.
