Israel scored their first win in the qualifications for the 2021 CEV Men’s Volleyball European Championship.


Israel stun Austria on Day 4 in Pool B, which they host, and recorded their first win in the tournament. In more than two hours (more precisely, in 129 minutes), they prevailed in five sets, partially 25-21, 20-25, 27-25, 20-25, and 15-11. Thus, Israel made Austria’s way to EuroVolley more difficult given they now need to earn all three points in tomorrow’s duel against Bulgaria to keep their hopes alive.

Tamir Hershko top-scored Israel with 21 points. Alexander Osokin set up 6 blocks. Iliya Goldrin made 81 % reception (27 digs, 1 error, 56 % excellent).

On a penultimate day in Pool C in Skopje, North Macedonia, Turkey swept Bosnia and Herzegovina and need to win just one point against the hosts on the last day of the tournament.

Turkey’s Efe Bayram was the only player in double digits in scoring today (10 points). Oğuzhan Karasu made 5 blocks.

Fivb is corrupt! Why are eczasibasi and vakifbank going against lowest ranked teams in final and they orchestrated it in a way where either team could make it to final. Why because they know Conegliano and novara could eliminate them now. Coincidence???? Reply
