The FIVB destroyed the World Championship by keeping the records of the first round for the second round! This way, most teams have no plausible chance to promote to round 3, including Russia and France!!!!

Re: @Sorin Acela
Agree!!! In addition to that, first round groups were UNBALANCED. For instance, Group A consists of really weak teams: Italy, Slovenia, Dom. Rep., Arg, Japan and Belgium!!! On the other hand, Pool C has SERBIA, USA and RUSSIA, most probably ITALY would have lost against all of these 3 teams. This is UNFAIR! Teams should not be charged with their first round performances because of this obvious unbalanced groups!! AGAIN, CROOKED FIVB!!!

maybe it's time to reward constant performance and results throughout the whole championship instead of last games

Re: @former_player --- Can't you understand that the teams that reach the 'last games', do that because of their previous results??? :)
But this system kills the show and the competition. Most teams are already virtually eliminated. Why keep on playing? Just go home ;)

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply

I believe there has been a typo. Libero is Jani Kovačič and not Jan Pokeršnik(receiver) Reply
