VNL F6 W: Guidetti has magic stick – Turkey in the final!

2124 0

Giovanni Guidetti one of the best volleyball coaches and person who doesn’t know for defeat in important matches, managed to bring the young team of Turkey to the final of the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

  

Although they barely passed the regular stage of the competition (5th), they came to Nanjing with the happy thoughts that they managed to secure the final tournament. That confirmed the coach Giovanni Guidetti at the beginning of the Final Six: 

“We are absolutely happy and proud of our journey to deserve the privilege to be here in the Finals. We will play the Finals like we have done all throughout the VNL, just thinking about point after point, with the drive to become better.”

And they really played for each point. The first, they had very hard games in the pool against USA and  Serbia (5 sets both matches) and then in the semifinal just crushed Brazil in straight sets (25-23, 25-23, 25-22).

O.K. maybe it wasn’t easy but Turkey finished the match in only three sets!

Meryem Boz (14) and  Hande Baladin (14) with middle blockers Eda Erdem Dundar (11) and Zehra Gunes (10) led the team. They played like one and that was the key for the victory.

On the Brazilian side, Tandara Alves Caixeta scored 20 points while Gabriela Braga Guimaraes  14 points and they were the only players who scored double effect. The next are Adenizia Da Silva and Bia with only 4 points. It seems that Brazil just had a bad day.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
