France made the race for the Final Six of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball more exciting by beating Pool 15 hosts Iran on Week 4 closing.

 

France gave Iran the real chance only in the first set, prevailing in the next two relatively easy to end rival’s seven-game winning streak (team record): 3-0 (25-18, 26-24, 25-21). Thus, France prevented Iran to have a perfect record after two successive weeks in which they were hosts – Week 3 in Urmia and this week in Ardabil.

Both teams are among the top six teams in the charts that will take part in the Finals in Chicago, the USA.

Trévor Clévenot highlighted for France (9-3; 28 points) with 15 points, while Mohammadjavad Manavinezhad notched 10 for Iran (10-2; 30 points).

 

The clash between the two teams fighting to avoid relegation Portugal and Australia, knowing that they are the lowest ranked challenger teams in the 2019 VNL standings at the moment, went into the favor of the players from the “Down Under” country 3-0.

Portugal (2-10; 7 points) had an advantage in the block (12-2) but Australia out-served rivals (11-2).

Lincoln Williams top-scored for the “Volleyroos” (2-10; 10 points) with 21 points. Marco Ferreira made 15 for Portugal, while Phelipe Martins set up 5 kill blocks.

Some of the players from the Portuguese national team during the match would get a hard blow from me. When he served Alex Ferreira and the ball was passing to Portugal, they did terrible things.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
