As expected, the Dutch girls have downed Romania to open the European Championship.


The Netherlands are the clear-cut favorites in Pool C and they proved it today by beating Romania 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-9). Celeste Plak and Yvon Belien were the best scorers on the winning side with 13 points each.

Azerbaijan scored a very important win even thought the European Championship has just started. They beat Croatia in a very uncertain game 3-2, to increase the chances for taking one of the first two sets. 

Yelizaveta Samodova was the best scorer in Azerbaijan with 28 points, while Polina Rahimova added 16. In Croatia, Samantha Fabris scored 31 points.

POOL C, round 1:

Croatia - Azerbaijan 2-3 (13-25, 25-20, 25-22, 24-26, 15-17)

Netherlands – Romania 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-9)

Hungary – Estonia 20:30 CET (Friday, August 23)

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
