Gianlorenzo Blengini has annpunced the roster that will represent Italy Men’s national team in the upcoming FIVB Volleyball International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games (August 9-11).

 

Blengini made an interesting list as he put as much as 3 liberos on it and decided to play the Qualifier with only 3 middle blockers. The middle blocker Alberto Polo has been crossed out from the preliminary list.

Italy will play Serbia, Australia and Cameroon in Pool C, at home in Bari.

The 14-man roster of Italy:

Setters: Simone Giannelli, Riccardo Sbertoli

Middle blockers: Simone Anzani, Matteo Piano, Roberto Russo

Outside hitters: Oleg Antonov, Filippo Lanza, Osmany Juantorena, Daniele Lavia

Opposite hitters: Gabriele Nelli, Ivan Zaytsev (captain)

Liberos: Fabio Balaso, Massimo Colaci, Nicola Pesaresi

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
