I don't know if it fits here, but U20 Chinese team is Brazil doing some friendly matches against Brazil U20 team. Brazil won the first one 3x1. Few of the macth can be seen here:
Brazillian roster for WGP 2017:
S: Naiane, Roberta and Macris
OH: Natalia, Rosamaria, Amanda, Drussyla, Edinara and Fernanda Tomé
OP: Tandara and Monique
MB: Adenizia, Mara, Carol and Bia
Libero: Suelen ad Gabi (Gabiru)
-It is nice to see Macris back to fight for a spot;
-Also good to see Bia back, she can be better in the rotation with two hitters in the front,as she is better hitting slides;
-Good to see that Edinara and Drussyla will stay at least for the preliminary rounds.They will join the U23 team after 2nd or 3rd round;
-The only downside is Monique back. Even though she is good, she is not overpowering and already too old. Better give chance to Paula Borgo or Lorenne
There will be two friendly matches against Dominican Republic, first one will be May 30th in the city of Manaus and the 2nd onde will be June 1st in Belém. Both cities are in the north of Brazil
What a turn-around for Serbia! Now they are commanding!
Despite Italy has crushed Serbia in the first set, Serbia managed to fight back and won 2nd set. Enweonwu and Pietrini are the best prospects for Italy...
Rexona played terrible, I dont think Ive seen they play this bad before. They were a disaster in reception.
Jaque got hurt. . But seams like is not anything serious.
I think they played bad because Minas could put some pressure in their game
I also think that Jaque has nothing serious, I hope
FINALLY a good game from Minas against Rexona! Despite some mistakes, especially in the serve, overall it was a great match! Naiane was setting with more precision and could give balls to all her hitters...
But Valquiria is still young, she has potential to improve, u can`t just give up on a young player like that.
I agree they should keep Bruna,Thais, Castilo and Juma. But please get ride of Mari and Riveira. Would be nice if they could sign Mari Paraiba or maybe Edinara.
I agree, Valquiria still can improve. Her attack is not that good, but she is a good blocker and server. Hope she improves!
I always root for Japanese team, they are my 2nd favorite team (apart form Brazil :D) and I really wish they could come back to be title contenders. But I fell that they miss dominant MBs. If they had at least something close to Norie Hiro (for me, the best MB ever played for Japan, played in the 1980s) would be huge step forward...
Just hope Rosamaria's injury isn't serious
Valinhos 0 x 3 SESI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qRiGdha2vk
Best scorer and MVP: Lorenne, 22 pts (19 kills with 57%, 2 blocks and 1 ace)
Edinara is really doing great so far! 28 pts against Rexona is amazing! Hope she keeps rocking!
I am really excited that Edinara is finally getting a chance to play! She is a 1,85 OH-OPP very talented, but has a "dark" history in Brazillian youth/junior teams and got expelled. I really hope they forgive her, she is NT material!!

Bauru x Osasco (Sportv will broadcast)
Drussyla is a very good player, but I think she needs playing a whole season as a starter. Being a sub keeps her a bit far away from Rosamaria, Gabi, Tandara, etc...
Brazil won't really have much problems with OH and OPP. My main concern is MB. Valquiria and Milka are good players but haven't been scoring that much lately. Maybe Bia (Osasco) can be invited again, she seems to be back on track...
Hooker played her first game for Minas.. She wasn't so impressive judging by the stats, but let's hope she'll improve
She had only 35% kills in this match, but she will surely improve. Minas still relying a lot on Rosamaria (24 pts, 21/41, 51%), hope Jaqueline lifts even more the team's performance...
sorry but Couldnt Osasco team find a better foreigner than Bjelica indeed ?
i mean they are traditionaly one of the strongest teams there in Brazil and they probably have enough money to transfer better foreigners
Osasco had a big cut this season... so no big stars for them.
