World League 2017

WL 2017: Argentina ended Bulgarian hopes for Final Six

Source: fivb.org

Argentina rounded out their 2017 FIVB Volleyball World League season on a high note as Nicolas Bruno inspired them to a remarkable 3-1 (25-16, 25-21, 23-25, 25-19) victory over Bulgaria that ended the Europeans' hopes of reaching the Final Six.

  

Wing spiker Bruno was simply everywhere at the Orfeo Superdomo, pacing the Argentines with 18 points (15 spikes, two blocks, one ace). Sebastián Solé also played a starring role (10 spikes, four blocks, one ace) while Cristian Poglajen hit double figures (12 spikes) as the hosts claimed their second World League win over Bulgaria this season.

Bulgaria - who had won 19 of the previous 28 major encounters between these two teams - never really got a grip on the game, in spite of fine performances from Tsvetan Sokolov (16 spikes, two blocks) and Rozalin Penchev  (11 spikes, two blocks, one ace).

More innovations in 2017: FIVB testing new rules regarding serve and back-row attack!

Beat of 7 to 15 and 8 subs per set is means half the team never sees the net and half only serves once per set. Going backwards in specializing the positions. I like the idea of subbing witthout stopping the game and no technical timeouts. Reply

This tournament will be such a waste of time if that new format will be introduced, eliminating the rewards for the teams that worked hard for it like Belgium and Slovenia. Reply
