Good news for the fans of the France Men’s Volleyball National Team!

 

According to L’Équipe, Laurent Tillie will lead the France National Team in the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. As it was known from earlier, after eight years at the helm of the “Les Bleus“, the expert had decided to leave the post at the end of the Olympics to join the Japanese club Panasonic Panthers. At the time, the event was to be held in the summer this year. However, the postponement of the Games has changed the situation for Tillie although there was a chance that he commanded France Men for the last time in the European Olympic Qualifier in January without knowing it.

“The idea was that I go to the Tokyo Olympics. With this postponement which is relatively short in time, I reached an agreement with the Japanese club to be able to go the Games and made the one with the French federation, too. It’s not official yet, we have to get into details but they agree. It’s progressing well,“ Tillie stated for L’Équipe.

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.
