Go Pool B
If I am not wrong, it was 15-13 for USA in the third set. Once Mendez finished to give the tactics, De Cecco said this: "Hey, no vamos a cerrar nada ahora, tenemos que tener paciencia, es largo. Pero juguemos convencidos , no vayamos a mitad, boludos, somos Argentina. Vamos convencidos, juguemos nuestro juego, vamos vamos".
It is something like: "Hey, we have to be patient, it is long! (the match). But we have to play with confidence in ourselves. We cant play at half speed (half-arsed). We are Argentina, let's play with confidence! Let's play our game, come on, come on!
Boludos is hard to translate It depends on the context. It literally means "jerk" but in this case, it would be like "dudes".
I like how he took over. He just like said, hey, listen. And then everone listened 👏👏👏👏

Stats after Prelims
i got exhausted after that game. I dont want to see another volleyball game in a few hours. 😭But ill surely watch USA vs Argentina. 🤣😂
Was that enough for France to qualify?
i am very happy with how they played against Russia and Brazil. With these showings i hope the Heavens will grant them 1 more shot 🙏.
Allez Les Bleus 💪🇨🇵
France will still have chances to advance even if they lose to Russia.
In Group A, Poland should win it all, the rest indeed is close enough to make it really hard to foresee anything. But I bet Italy will beat Iran today, and then Iran and Japan will play against each other an elimination game where the winner will advance. A scenario where both Iran and Japan will play in QF is possible only if Japan gets at least one point today, or Iran wins against Italy (or Canada loses a point against Venezuela). Oh, and Iran getting a point as well, but Japan has to win a set against Poland (considering 3-0 win of Canada).
They thrive on pressure games, it happened in the OQT (down 2 sets against Slovenia), they did it at the VNL as well vs. Poland.
Maybe, 3rd time's the charm. If not, because of you-know-who. They'll have another opportunity come Paris 2024.
France is in the Olympics coz they earned their spot. They worked for it. Not their fault why Germany, Slovenia and Bulgaria did not qualify.
If France cant win against bigger teams, how much more those teams that didnt even qualify. 🤷
I see you. This last game was a perfect example of why the presence of N'Gapeth in court can mostly of the times be more prejudicial than benefic for France, in moments that they need him most he just fades away.
I just hope that he'll get better if L. Tillie keeps on starting him.. But if he's at the same level. I wish (unlikely) to put in Louati, give him the chance to play. (unlike what he did to Trevor and Thibault in Rio)
^^^^ France and Brazil have the same (lol), the thing is you guys are in and my French babies are not (mad)
And when i say French babies, N'Gapeth, K.Tillie and his father are not part of it!
I fall asleep when Argentina was leading 20-17 in the third set (great point btw), but Im really happy to see the final score.
Everything is still open. And we shouldnt dismiss Tunisia yet. It is probaby they wont qualify to the QFs, but they might get some sets or points from the other teams. And in such a tight pool, this could be key. The African team almost grabbed two sets against USA earlier today.
They're big but agile. i'm actually happy for them. I hope they can upset Argentina 🤣😂
France need to find a new coach. Tillie's dad had been NT coach for a long time, but he had not made France NT a better team. His selection for France NT roster is always biased.
Today, in set #5, Tillie was sub on for a serve, but his slow float serve simply gave Argentina an easy chance to score.
Tillie was awful in Italy Superlega this season, and his club ranked at the bottom after season.
Tillie's poor performance did not earn him a new contract in Italy club, so he will return to France league next season.
Tillie's dad still selected his son and Louati for Tokyo 2021, but gave up Rossard who's a better OH than Tillie and Loucati.
What a shame.
They'll have Bruno's dad. I do know about Tillie's performance in the Italian league however he did play well in the VNL hence his inclusion. N'Gapeth is the biggest disappointment right now. This is his 3rd game but he still cant figure out what is wrong with him.
Personally, i posted this before, if it was me, i'll go with this set of OH
Yes, i am sad for Les Bleus. My only consolation is that MY Trevor Clevenot 🥰😍 is really playing well.
24 pts (20 attacks (50+ % efficiency, 3 blocks and an ace)
I actually have a grudge against Piacenza, they did not renew Trevor 😤
I know his reputation is bigger than life, but at this point, don’t France has anyone better than him to play?
i don't know about the coach. i just hope N'Gapeth and K. Tillie will retire from the NT after this Olympic.
