In a super-intense second match of the Day 1 in the 2017 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Grand Champions Cup in Japan, Iran prevailed in a tie-breaker over Italy.

 

In an exhausting encounter in Nagoya, Iran proved to be more lucid in the tie-break against the Italian National Team after being ahead of the rivals in sets twice, 3-2 (25-19, 23-25, 28-26, 29-31, 15-11)

Italy was better than Iran in the service (8-3 in aces), in the blocking (15-8 in kill blocks) and even made nearly double the fewer unforced errors (22-42) but still managed to suffer a defeat since their mistakes always came at the worst possible moment. In general, it was a highly nervous game for both sides as Iran committed 120 errors, while Italy made 112!

Despite being a losing side, Italy had the best scorer of the match, Filippo Lanza, with 23 points. Daniele Mazzone stood out in blocking, having 6 kill blocks. Amir Ghafour notched 21 points for Iran

Guidetti excluded from the game vs. Russia after not accepting referee’s controversial call (VIDEO)

Mr. G. Guidetti is a member of FIVB Technical and Coaching Commission, so that he can officially initiate to incorporate into a Video challenge systems also floor touches.. Moreover to deal with an issue of double contacts ..
He can also ask to open the contract with an official FIVB ball producer and require to change it for a normally visible one or to cancel it... He can do it via the Commission, and asks for a support Italian and Turkish NVFs... Reply

De Kruijf – “Guidetti should’ve named true reason for leaving, which has probably been money”

Im not a fan of Guidetti (I think he keeps complaining decisions from the refree). But I dont agree with her. It was his decision. She needs to understand that. Hes free to choose what is best for him Reply

New volleyball organization established and it includes several powerful national leagues

Really looking forward to seeing what they are going to achieve in the future... Reply
