Estonia stunned the Netherlands in the last match of Day 3 in the 2019 CEV Men’s Volleyball European Golden League.


Day 3 in the Women’s competition ended with Finland’s win over Azerbaijan. As for the Men, Estonia brought Day 3 to an end by surprisingly beating the Netherlands at home in Tartu by a 3-2 (25-22, 25-23, 19-25, 20-25, 16-14).

It was the first win for the Baltic country in the tournament which did not help them escape the last place in Pool B but it made the Dutch team a fight for the top spot in the pool more difficult. Especially, due to the fact that Spain swept Croatia on the road (3-0) yesterday. Turkey and Belarus lead Pool A and Pool C, respectively, with a perfect record after three rounds. Turkey beat Slovakia by a 3-0 while Belarus downed Ukraine in four sets, both matches were played yesterday.

Andrus Raadik was the most prolific player in the winning side with 22 points. Maarten van Garderen top-scored for the Netherlands.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
