The French Volleyball Federation (FFV) informed that the main star of its Men’s National Team, Earvin Ngapeth, will miss the most of the preliminary round at the upcoming CEV European Men’s Championship!

 

Due to rib injury, Ngapeth will miss the start of the 2019 EuroVolley and his unavailability to play is estimated to a minimum of three games. In the worst case, to five games! Recall that the one of the best players in the world felt a flank pain (the side of a body between the ribs and the hip) during the warm-up for the test match against Germany. Ngapeth spent Monday in a hospital in Montpellier and underwent an ultrasound and an MRI after which the nature of his injury became clearer.

On the other hand, good news came regarding the condition of Trévor Clévenot. The ultrasound of his adductor showed that he did not sustain injury and, therefore, he will resume training with the group for the first match at the EuroVolley against Romania, on Thursday, September 12.

France Head Coach Laurent Tillie decided to re-summon Thibault Rossard in order to have an outside hitter more in the roster. He will replace his cousin Nicolas Rossard in the final list for the continental championship, which is yet to be announced.

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
