Brazil’s head coach José Roberto Guimarães “Zé Roberto” rationally analyzed the defeat of his team to the USA in the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League final, knowing that the primary objective of the “Seleção” is to play well at the Qualifications for the 2020 Olympic Games, in August.


 

“It was important to reach the final. Our trajectory in the Nations League was positive. We went through a lot of difficulties but we managed to qualify for the final. I need to praise my players for the fight and dedication. I’m very proud of this group. They behaved very well and fought throughout the championship. It was a pity that we lost Natália at the end of the second set. She was fine and coming back to her best shape. The United States were better in the final set and deserved the victory,” Zé Roberto said.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
