Gianlorenzo Blengini, the head coach of Italy men’s national team, sent the preliminary list of players to the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) for the 2018 Nations League.


 

Blengini sent the 26-man list of Italy to the FIVB for the inaugural edition of the Nations League that will be reduced to 21 names on May 15. What is obvious at first sight, not counting the players who struggle with injuries, is that Diatec Trentino opposite Luca Vettori was left out of the squad.

SETTERS: Simone Giannelli (Diatec Trentino), Riccardo Sbertoli (Revivre Milano), Michele Baranowicz (Wixo LPR Piacenza), Luca Spirito (Calzedonia Verona).

MIDDLE BLOCKERS: Davide Candellaro (Cucine Lube Civitanova), Daniele Mazzone (Azimut Modena), Enrico Cester (Cucine Lube Civitanova), Enrico Diamantini (Bunge Ravenna), Simone Anzani (Sir Safety Conad Perugia), Alberto Polo (Kioene Padova), Fabio Ricci (Sir Safety Conad Perugia).

ATTACKERS (outside hitters and opposites): Luigi Randazzo (Kioene Padova), Simone Parodi (Wixo LPR Piacenza), Osmany Juantorena (Cucine Lube Civitanova), Filippo Lanza (Diatec Trentino), Gabriele Maruotti (Taiwan Excellence Latina), Oleg Antonov (Ziraat Ankara), Giacomo Raffaelli (Bunge Ravenna); Ivan Zaytsev (Sir Safety Conad Perugia), Giulio Sabbi (Azimut Modena), Gabriele Nelli (Kioene Padova), Andrea Argenta (Azimut Modena).

LIBEROS: Salvatore Rossini (Azimut Modena), Fabio Balaso (Kioene Padova), Massimo Colaci (Sir Safety Conad Perugia), Nicola Pesaresi (Calzedonia Verona).

He didn't play in the regular season, so this is not a surprise decision.

@brazilvolleygirl Vettori played in the regular season, supercoppa, champions league, italian cup and the playoffs. He just had a bad season in Trentino. Please stop spreading fake news!

Vetori did not have a good season. He looks very weak. Italy does not need him as they have the beast called Zaytsev. And they have Sabbi and the promising Nelli.

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
