2023 FIVB Challenger Cup

  • There's nothing for second team anyways so it doesn't matter how matchups are arranged. To promote to vnl, one should win all 3 matches

    I noticed your impressive prediction skills during VNL. Out of curiosity, how would you rank the following teams: France, Vietnam, Ukraine, Croatia and Sweden.

    To me, semis will be France, Ukraine, Colombia and Sweden.

    Finals will be France-Sweden

    Champion Sweden🥳


    I'm a big Haak fan so I might be biased about final. France has equal chance especially after Bauer is also returning to NT. They were missing a good MB. On the other hand, their key players are not in their best shape so Sweden has a fair chance if we see Lazic sisters can sufficiently support Haak.


    Rebecka will be back to NT for this tournament, right? Is she fully recovered?

    So this tournament starts with Quarterfinals. Okay


    And that means (you're predicting) Vietnam plays France and goes home :(


    Brrr

    Vietnam is a fun team to watch but playing in SEA games against short teams is different against taller European teams. But these tournaments are always up for surprises!🥰

  • There's sylves that is in italy,she didn't developp as I expected but for this level she's good

  • Match will happen only if the Vietnamese players can get their visas/permits in time to travel to France. Last I heard these are still being processed :(

    Oh no. Vietnam's Brush With Greatness can't be crushed before the brush :(


    these tournaments are always up for surprises!🥰

    thanks :drink:

  • Rebecka is in the lineup for the challenge cup! :)


    I would really like to see Sweden vs Vietnam personally. :D

  • I see. Personally I really wouldnt put too much belief into a Swedish victory albeit a very generous draw. In case France will match with Helena Cazaute, I am kinda convinced they will defeat Sweden in a hypothethical matchup. Without Cazaute it might be more balanced for sure.

  • Mexico's roster is quite sad. No Bricio or Parra (or their other good NCAA players)


    S: Ivone Martinez, Celeste Vela, Paola Rivera

    Opp: Andrea Rangel, Fernanda Rodriguez

    OH: Grecia Castro, Daniela Siller, Aime Topete

    MB: Andrea Elicerio, Joselyn Urias, Karina Flores, Sara Cantu

    L: Joseline Landeros, Paola Laborda


    (this isnt official, but what i saw online)

  • Norceca teams seems to sending best teams or in best shape for this tournament
