2022 Men's Volleyball Nations League

  • I believe this is Brazil, not Istanbul.


    they missed the flight from Sao Paulo to Brasilia (apparently some mistakes from the Turkish airline)

    yeah, very possible. I haven’t check the pics very carefully, it is not Istanbul Airport for sure. I hope they’ll make it on time.

  • speaking of Brazil, roster for the first week:


    S: Bruno, Cachopa

    OH: Lucarelli, Rodriguinho, Adriano, Vaccari

    MB: Lucão, Isac, Flávio, Aracaju

    OPP: Alan, Franco

    L: Thales, Maique

    they are in Brasilia already , just a bit tired because of the flight issue

  • this is the italian team for 1week in Ottawa:


    Palleggiatori: Marco Falaschi, Simone Giannelli.

    Centrali: Lorenzo Cortesia, Gianluca Galassi, Leandro Mosca, Marco Vitelli.

    Schiacciatori: Mattia Bottolo, Davide Gardini, Fabrizio Gironi, Francesco Recine.

    Opposti: Giulio Pinali, Yuri Romanò.

    Liberi: Alessandro Piccinelli, Leonardo Scanferla.

  • Is it Salehi on the rouster?

    Meisam (OH) or Arman (libero) ? the answer is no anyway. none of them are here


    I believe you mean Meisam Salehi who is on the wide roster. but he is recovering from a shoulder surgery and will miss the VNL entirely.

  • Which bands do you think will be the biggest favorites? In my opinion: Poland, Brazil, France :rose: Poles have a very wide squad and a lot of valuable players, Brazil, regardless of the squad, always counts and France is the Olympic champion, so it will also count

    For me it's really hard to say what will happen as a lot of new faces in many teams. But it may finish as you predicted.

    It is a pity that Türkiye does not participate in the VNL because they could create a nice competition.


    Poland and Brazil can be placed blindly as favorites :cheesy:

    As long as we have that clown as a coach, I don't think we could make it to VNL🤦

  • Is Mojarad to return to this VNL after his injury? mosi

    Mojarrad, Karimi and Salehi they all have the same situation. recovering from a surgery and will miss the VNL. I don't know why they are in the list, they trained with the team in Tehran but the coach made it clear that they are not going to play in VNL. they are expected to be able to play in time for the World Championship but who knows how good they will be after such a long recovery period.


    without these guys and without Marouf, Mousavi and Ghafour Iran is probably one of the weakest teams of this VNL :aww:they lost twice to Serbia B/C/D/Z squad few days ago.

  • I am sorry he got injured and looking forward to seeing him back in court, but at least we get to see him shirtless during his rehabilitation, which is very rare for Iranian players for some reason. lol

    different culture maybe, posting shirtless pics in your social media is not the politest thing to do! even though I see this is changing, the new generation of athletes (in different sports) has no problem doing that. :lol:

  • Lucarelli got injured in the last friendly against Japan and is no longer playing the first week, so now Birigui is going instead of him.
