Brasil will send B team to Panamerican Cup, so i read from a local media. however, Julia Bergman will not play either.
the edited or additional posts shall not be counted, guys.
i am serious, Hilma was super great, if ze likes, i hope she could be invited too along with Fernanda Venturini and Marcia Fu Cunha. lol
any body knows how is Jenina Conceicao nowadays ? Fabiana flopped a lot since two seasons ago, i do not think her back is a wise decision but she can share more experience to the youngsters indeed.
the successors Lima and Arlene were both much better than Suelen, orz, the latter should be forgotten for ever.
i totally doubt sheilla and tandara's shape recently, who were absent from court for so long time or after a long break due to injury. the both passed their golden ages so can they dare to shine their best performances in the next tournaments?
Canada 3-0 over Croatia by 25-18, 25-20, 26-24 to get to the challenger final.
Czech Republic will fight for the only vacancy against Canada in order to promote to 2020 VNL.
if Korea quits, i hope Canada could join the next edition, other than Bulgaria.
i hope the bottom 2 teams in VNL preliminary round will be cut off.
Korea and Bulgaria are apparently both missed out from the schedule.
then i guess the big chance is the finalists from challenger cup will be filled out.

So mainly Jennifer Geerties is still missing, and Kästner at rest (will return next week). But against this B team of Russia they may have a chance to stun the favourites after the usual long series of defeats...
Russia C-group girls gained quite some self-confidence from the gold-like win over China B group, however, i think Germany will conquer them because they have more stable serve machines which is apparently on the contrary in Russia.
Dutch roster, but sloetjes, buijs, plak, de kruif, belien are still missing.
S: dijkema, van aalen
OH: daalderop, M.jasper, H.jasper, luttikhuis, meijers, siebring
MB: lohuis, timmerman, korevaar
L: Knip, schoot

S: Hanke, Imoudu
OPP: Lippmann, Drewniok

hanke replaces kostner
poll replaces bock
pogany replaces lohman
drewniok is added as the 14th player
