582 0

United Volleys Frankfurt had a great debut in the Champions League!

 

They defeated Soligorsk away in straight sets to mark their first appearance in this competition as an excellent game. The third-placed team in Germany, in the last season, now needs to take one set to advance to the next round.

"At the start, we were shy in our actions. Frankfurt had a good defense and serving skills. At the end of the second set we had a chance, but we could not score an important ball,” says Viktar Beksha, head coach of Shakhtior.

"We are satisfied with the result in Minsk. We were not nervous, all the players acted tactically and confidently. There are new players in our team at the start of the new season, who are successfully playing in the club right now," says Stelio DeRocco, head coach of United Volleys Frankfurt.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
