The Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) announced a complete final list of the men’s national team players for the 2019 international season.

 

Earlier, Brazil Men head coach Renan Dal Zotto summoned 15 players to the preliminary list but left room for seven players who competed in the national championship finals and two players who competed in leagues abroad, more precisely in Italy.

The opposite hitter Alan Souza, outside hitters Douglas Souza, Lucas Lóh and Ricardo Lucarelli, middle blocker Lucas Saatkamp “Lucão“ and libero Thales Hoss will appear next Monday (May 20) in Campinas where Brazil will have two friendlies against Canada. The middle blocker Otávio Pinto will also appear on May 20, but at the training center in Saquarema. The setter Bruno Rezende “Bruninho“ and outside hitter Yoandy Leal, both defending the colors of Cucine Lube Civitanova (Italy) will appear on May 27. Bruninho will go to Saquarema, while Leal will join the team in Katowice, Poland, for the first weekend of the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League. Thus, for the first time in history, Brazilian Men’s national team will have a player who changed his sports citizenship. A 30-year-old Cuban-born Leal was granted by the FIVB to play for Brazil in October 2017.

Galatasaray is not thinking of taking any foreign player next year. Journalist and manager just pumping his price in Modena. Reply

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

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
