1631 0

After announcing the best female lineup composed of European players 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.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
