Even without four starters, the Poland National Team demolished Bulgaria at the start of the third week of the 2021 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League.


Poland had no problems in the match of the seventh round of the 2021 Men’s VNL against Bulgaria. The players coached by Vital Heynen won in three sets and improved to 6-1 in the tournament to earn a top spot in the charts: 3-0 (25-19, 25-15, 25-12). The Belgian expert gave a day off to Kubiak, Kurek, Semeniuk, and Bieniek, while Bulgaria missed its biggest star, Tsvetan Sokolov. Poland was led by Bartosz Bednorz (14 points).

With 20 points of Yoandy Leal, Brazil beat The Netherlands in straight sets, partially 25-19, 25-22, and 27-25, winning the sixth game of the competition and settled just behind Poland on the table.

“It was a good game, although we started the third set a little more confused. But Leal saved us in the third set to reach the goal of winning three more points in the League of Nations,” said after the match Maurício de Souza, who contributed to the victory of the ‘Seleção’ with 4 blocks.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
