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).
