Brazil National Team defeated hosts Japan on Day 10 of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Cup to secure a title one round before the end of a 12-team round-robin tournament that is played every four years (in a year before the Olympic Games).

 

Brazil beat Japan by a 3-1 (25-17, 24-26, 25-14, 27-25) in Hiroshima to reach 10th win in as many matches (lost only 5 sets) and take the World Cup title one round before the end of the tournament. It was the third time in history that the “Seleção“ has lifted the World Cup trophy, having won in 2003 and 2007 prior to this year. Brazil collected 29 points in the standings, while second-placed Poland are at 25 points (8-2) after losing to Brazil in the tie-break yesterday.

This is certainly the most significant achievement of Brazil's male national team in the “post-Bernardinho“ era. After Bernardo Rezende “Bernardino“ gave away the command to Renan Dal Zotto in 2017, after 16 years, Brazil were South American champions in 2017 and 2019 and took the 2017 FIVB World Grand Champions Cup, events of less importance than the World Cup.

Yoandy Leal top-scored for the “Seleção“ today with 24 points, while Ricardo Lucarelli served 4 aces. Yuji Nishida scored 17 for Japan who lost the chance to win a medal. They are fourth in the charts with 20 points (7-3).

Whilst the gold medal went into the hands of Brazil, a way of a distribution of the other two medals will be known only after the final round, tomorrow. Poland (No.2 with 25 points) and the USA (No.3 with 24 points) recorded straight-set victories and their last-round matches against Iran and Egypt, respectively, will decide on who will take the silver and who will take the bronze medal.

Italy and Iran played the most intense duel in the tournament so far. Led by the Dutch-born Dick Kooy (28 points) and Gabriele Nelli (27 points), the “Azzurri“ came back from 2 sets down.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
