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

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
