1191 0

After announcing the best female lineup in the last decade, the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) did the same in the men's competition.


After listening to the expertise of Belgian and French coaches Vital Heynen and Philippe Blain, respectively, as well as of former Italy National Team member Andrea Zorzi, the CEV composed the “European Team of the Decade: Men 2010-2019“. The ideal line-up has two Frenchmen, two Russians, two Poles, and one Italian player.

Setter – Benjamin Toniutti (FRA)

Middle blockers – Piotr Nowakowski (POL) and Dmitriy Muserskiy (RUS)

Libero – Jénia Grebennikov (FRA)

Opposite hitter – Maksim Mikhaylov (RUS)

Outside hitters – Osmany Juantorena (ITA) and Wilfredo León (POL)


Recall what the women's team of the last decade looks like.

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
