  • Italy is already training and is going to retain the crown since they're the reigning champions

    Also get revenge with Russia that won u17 at 2018


    I wanna see them and Frosini that if she didn't get injured at semi finals,they should have won the u18 world championship

    I guess Frosini is going to be benched. Bintu Diop will be the starter. This team is even stronger than the one in Egypt. Anna Adelusi, Bassi and Diop weren't there.

  • I don't know that diop

    How is her? Where she play?

    She's a very good prospect, very tall (I believe she's around 195) and left handed with a strong swing, she was the MVP at last year u18 italian championship with Volleyrò. She's not on Egonu level or anything, but definetly interesting.

    I hope also Consoli makes the final round, she's probably a bit too short for a MB but I think she's really good too

    Volleyro isn't savino's young team?

    Now i remember see her

    Yeah she impressed me when i first saw at that tournament but i think frosini is still better

    Volleyrò has a deal and they are sponsored by Savino since 2-3 years or so, but it isn't their youth team. They've been one of the (if not the) best youth team in Italy for years, they won the last 6 u18 italian championship in a row. Many A1 and A2 players come from there (Pietrini, Danesi, Cambi, Nwakalor...)

  • Serbian wide roster

    https://www.cev.eu/Competition…aspx?TeamID=11712&ID=1201


    and my prediction for 14 will be something like this:

    s: Vrcelj, Tišma

    opp: Kockarević, Savić/Taubner

    oh: Ćirković, Cvetković, Milanović, Sajić

    mb: Kurtagić, Malešević, Drobnjak, Savićević

    l: Gočanin, Medved


    Ofc for some girls from this list i dont know anything but anyway i doubt that there will be major deviations, these are mostly players who have already proven (more or less) themselves at the senior level in the clubs they come from.

  • Sude Hacımustafaoğlu, Dalia Wilson, Damla Tokman are some of the names I will really be curious of performance-wise.


    I don't know much about the other teams but this Turkish team should again at least do decent I think. Better prognosis I can do after the first matches of the teams.

  • How iw this group level? Last ech tournaments for serbia have been so bad and didn't even qualify to wch

  • Last ech tournaments for serbia have been so bad and didn't even qualify to wch

    Actually Serbia on u19 ECH 2018 (last tournaments) finished 5th, personaly i did't mention that result as so bad and junior national team played on last year u20 World Championship, maybe you think as this group so their results in u17,18 categorie.

    How iw this group level?

    IMO many girls improve a lot in last season, as Vrcelj, Kockarevic, Kurtagic, Gočanin;

    and next to them there are promising player like Ćirković, Cvetkovic on OH position.

    I dont know about level of other team's and position of Serbia in comparation to other's but in general this is solid generation, not nearly the best, but solid on every position.


    I expect at least the same result as previous generation or better than that.

    Changed the title of the thread from “2020 CEV JUNIOR VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIP” to “2020 CEV Junior Volleyball Championship”.
  • I meant in comparison to last decade where they get to wch finals and also be ech champions

  • This year we will see most of this roster in Turkish league. 11 player so far.

    Lila, Ipar, Gülçe, Hilal will play for Fenerbahçe.

    Derin Ezgi-Sude Pehlivan for Beşiktaş.

    Nur ozaydinli for Karayolları

    Elifsu, Sude hacimustafaoglu, Beren for Galatasaray.

    Ilayda for Yeşilyurt.

    This is good news for Turkish volleyball IMO.

  • Agreed. Ironically we owe it to ongoing economic crisis, with their usual budgets most of those teams wouldn't bother to play with young locals...
