WCH 2018 W: Brazil took the scalp to the Netherlands, Dominicans and Germans with new wins

360 0

The situation in Pool E at the 2018 FIVB World Championship is almost clear but it’s still unknown who will be the third team that will qualify to the next round.


In Today’s matches, Dominican Republic crushed Mexico in straight sets thanks to Brayelin Martinez and Bethania De La Cruz who scored 12 points each. In this way, Dominicans scored their fourth win at the competition but unfortunately, they will tomorrow finish with the participation at this year’s World Championship.

In the second match of the day in Nagoya, Brazil barely outplayed the Netherlands who suffered the first loss in a five-set thriller. The Europeans led 2-1 in sets but at the key points, the experienced of the Brazilian players but also the superior teamwork made the differences in the play. Tandara Caixeta scored a match-high 28 points while on the other side, Lonneke Slotjes finished the match with 25 points.

Brazil still have the chances to move to the third round of the competition but tomorrow’s match against Japan will decide which team will go home and who will stay in the game.

In the third match, Germany beat Puerto Rico but that will bring them the better position on the final standings since that after tomorrow’s matches they will go home. Maren Fromm and Louisa Lippmann scored 25 points each for the winning team while Stephanie Enright scored 22 points and Daly Santana 21 points for the Puertoricans.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
