Vital Heynen, the head coach of Poland men’s national team, announced the squad for the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.


Heynen announced a 26-man list of Poland that will undergo preparations for the premier edition of the FIVB Nations League, formerly known as the FIVB World League. The Belgian expert also summoned two extra players that will only take part in the training.

“These 26 players are not only the result of planning the composition but also a result of long conversations with players, thanks to which I realized they are very motivated and ready to work. I am looking forward to the first joint training in May,” said Heynen.

The team will hold the first gathering in Warsaw, on May 7, to undergo medical examinations. Two days later, Poland will start practicing at the training camp in Spała. Before taking part in the Nations League (May 25 – July 8), Poland will face Canada in the two friendlies, in Katowice (May 19) and Opole (May 21).

Re: @Logan Tom
Ni Yan is the best blocker in this competition. Her average block per set in the highest. And she scores more points than Anna Danesi. Ni Yan definitely is the 1st Middle Blocker in this competition. She deserved the title. Reply
