VNL F6 W: Guidetti has magic stick – Turkey in the final!

1648 0

Giovanni Guidetti one of the best volleyball coaches and person who doesn’t know for defeat in important matches, managed to bring the young team of Turkey to the final of the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

  

Although they barely passed the regular stage of the competition (5th), they came to Nanjing with the happy thoughts that they managed to secure the final tournament. That confirmed the coach Giovanni Guidetti at the beginning of the Final Six: 

“We are absolutely happy and proud of our journey to deserve the privilege to be here in the Finals. We will play the Finals like we have done all throughout the VNL, just thinking about point after point, with the drive to become better.”

And they really played for each point. The first, they had very hard games in the pool against USA and  Serbia (5 sets both matches) and then in the semifinal just crushed Brazil in straight sets (25-23, 25-23, 25-22).

O.K. maybe it wasn’t easy but Turkey finished the match in only three sets!

Meryem Boz (14) and  Hande Baladin (14) with middle blockers Eda Erdem Dundar (11) and Zehra Gunes (10) led the team. They played like one and that was the key for the victory.

On the Brazilian side, Tandara Alves Caixeta scored 20 points while Gabriela Braga Guimaraes  14 points and they were the only players who scored double effect. The next are Adenizia Da Silva and Bia with only 4 points. It seems that Brazil just had a bad day.

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply

WCH 2018 W: All six teams are known for Third round

If Russia had won the match even in 5 sets they would have classified because they would have ended up with same number of victories than us but one more point. So before the last set against China ended USA was not classified Reply
