Third final for this generation and they have eliminated Poland in the last 4 European championships.
the junior (U21) male event of volleyball of 2021 Chinese National Games:
Shaanxi 0-3 Shandong
Jiangsu 3-1 Hebei
Henan 0-3 Zhejiang
Guangdong 0-3 Beijing
Henan 3-0 Hebei
Shandong 3-0 Beijing
Zhejiang 3-0 Guangdong
Shaanxi 0-3 Jiangsu
Due to lack of money of BAIC Motor, Beijing VC's sponsor, I doubt whether the players from Beijing VC hope to play volleyball abroad more.
I focus on the three wing spikers of Beijing U21 - Adecio Yin Ca, Deng Xin-peng and Hu Zhen-zhuo
Bad news for the league, such an important team. So maybe Marouf returns to the iranian league. Who was the other foreigner of Beijing this season?
The last point is the perfect summary of the match. So many opportunities wasted by Germany.
Buijs 28 points (58%) and Dalderoop 22p.
Lol you have Stigrot and Orthmann but you keep playing with Alsmeier
Lippmann "just" 8 points inthe first set. She was attacking everything
I´m sure there are U19 and U21 women teams with better passing the Greece NT (and better middle blockers). Chantava, Vlachaki, Strantzali .
I agree the greek coach should have tried Anthouli + Vasilantonaki as wing spiker.
So Swan Ngapeth has signed with Modena once again. He had one good season in Latina but the next one with Vibo Valentia he was useless and last season he was a reserve player in Poitiers.
What are all the Italian volleyball players reposting on instagram? Volleyball with a knife and blood in it. What does it mean?
Italian government is going to allow just 25% of capacity in the sports halls for next season.
Now France will get a chance to defend their title in home soil
But Bernardinho will be their new coach by then, right?
Exactly, this was the last match of Laurent Tillie with the French NT.
According to the MC Claren report (2011-2015) at least 8 Russian volleyball players (men and women) tested positive and nothing happened. In the final of the Olympic qualifiers 2016, Russia beat France by 3-2 and Alexander Markin tested positive (he whas the best player in that match) and France had to play another qualifier while Russia didn´t receive any punishment, they qualified to Rio 2016.
So if you think Brasil is going to be penalized, keep waiting, this is not an individual sport and Fivb always washes its hands.
Roster for the olympics confirmed!
Sanchez over Uriarte ---> deserved
Mendez over Martinez ---> pathetic nepotism
Lol. His other son plays as libero, why not is he in the roster?
I´m sure there are many Argentinian wing spikers much better than Mendez. Jan Martinez, Palonsky, Quiroga...
It seems that Lukas Kampa signed with Gdansk for next season and Christian Fromm is moving to Cannes (this season he has played in Greece) .
Or maybe Semeniuk . Honestly, I hope they invest in Voronkov, he could be great next season... even with Micah who plays fast volleyball. Bednorz could be great with Micah as well.
Yeah, Voronkov did a great job against Kozle and Alekno praised him at the press conference. Some Russian fans were saying that he praised Voronkov in order to renew his contract, but he is 25 and he needs to be a starter.
Next season with the Volkov-Bednorz duo, Voronkov will have plenty of opportunities to play as both starters are a bit irregular (I´m sure Alekno prefers Semeniuk than Bednorz)
Been reading in the Russian forums, there are rumors of Christienson (S), Volkov (OH), Leal (OH), Kurkaev (MB) for Kazan next season. All except Leal are quite possible as I believe the latter is going to Modena. Zenit Kazan will be a completely different team next season
You are right. Leal signed with Modena (same as Ngapeth).
Bednorz has one more year of contract, let´s see if they try to break it in order to sign another foreigner (I´m sure they want to do that, but they need to pay around 650,000€ to Bednorz, so...).
I´m sure yesterday those players were supporting Zaksa Kozle in Champions League. Alekno said if they qualified to the Champions League final, Iranian players would had to do a training camp in Kazan so that he could train Zenit Kazan and Iran NT at the same time.
I also remembered Toniutti played for Kazan in 2014, didn‘t he? Was it the season they got Marouf in mid-season? Was Benjamin injured or did not achieve Kazan’s expectations?
Cev didn´t allow Toniutti to play with Kazan in Champions League because he was registered with Ravenna in Challenge Cup so Kazan decided to sign Marouf although his performance was not good enough and Kobzar ended playing as a starter.
