I haven't seen the whole match because I was extremely tired so I only watched three sets, but really? People thought that Italy lost the set on purpose?Well you haven't seen many Italy or Macerata games I guess, they tend to get nervous and lose sets like this all the time, which is I think the main reason why Macerata didn't win anything this year... (but maybe I'm biased because I can't stand like, half the players in my nt, so yeah.)
anyway, I won't ever understand Weber's choices... I've never liked Pereyra, at all, and when I saw that this year he was playing as OH I thought Weber wanted to test him during the qualification round since they were already qualified but sadly I was wrong poor Quiroga, he can't do everything by himself.
But I'm glad I've got to see Uriarte playing in this match, he definitely did a good job! I'm looking forward to see him play in Poland next year.
I think anyway that this team is lacking of the attitudine they had back in 2011, which is one of the main reason I started to support them - even thought they hadn't stronger players than the other teams they always seemed to fight and enjoy the matches... this is what they're mainly missing right now, and I don't know what happened.. I guess they definitely need a new coach (maybe one that won't let Pereyra play at all )
