At the end of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League final in Chicago, Illinois, USA, the International Volleyball Federation voted the Dream Team of the Final Six.

 

The FIVB has chosen USA’s Matthew Anderson Most Valuable Player of the Final Six, despite his team lost to Russia in the final. This was his second MVP award in the competition under the FIVB. The first one came in the 2015 World Cup. Anderson also earned the Best Opposite award.

“It’s tough to be happy with losing a gold medal match. I am happy with the way that I played but I can play a lot better. I’m going to work really hard these next two weeks before we take off for the qualification as I’m sure all of us are,” Anderson said for the website of the USA Volleyball Federation (USAV).

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Trentino should be fine to advance in the top 3 2nd place positions for Champions League quarterfinals. Hopefully this rest will help them. That win in Milano was impressive. Lube continues to look great and Juantorena is still playing at a high level. Reply
