Serbia Men’s national team head coach Nikola Grbić made the last-minute change in the roster that will compete in the FIVB Volleyball International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (August 9-11) – and Serbian fans will love it!

 

Grbić has chosen 14 players for the tournament in Bari, Italy, (Pool C) a few days ago, and played the Wagner Memorial in Poland with them. But, a one-time CEV EuroVolley Best Blocker and 2-time CEV Champions League Best Middle Blocker, Marko Podraščanin, became Grbić’s last-minute change in the roster.

This means that the recovery of the middle blocker after the Achilles tendon surgery, due to which he missed out the 2019 FIVB Nations League, went well and he is ready to play for the national team. Podraščanin replaced Stevan Simić in Serbia’s roster for the Qualifier.

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
