Finland National Team arrived in Ljubljana, Slovenia, for the 2019 CEV European Men’s Volleyball Championship (France, Belgium, Slovenia and the Netherlands; September 12-29) with the expected roster. Actually, the same 14 players who took part in the test matches against Estonia and Italy are included.

 

Finland will have only one libero in the 14-player roster (Kerminen), but on the other hand, they will have three setters (Tervaportti, Lankinen and Ivanov). The outside hitter Peetu Mäkinen, who was in the preliminary roster, is unable to play in the EuroVolley due to his lower leg injury. Finland, who are in Pool C, will open the tournament with a match against Northern Macedonia, on Thursday. Other rivals of the nation from the Scandinavia in the pool stage are the host team of Slovenia, Belarus, Russia and Turkey.

Finland’s roster:

2. Eemi Tervaportti, setter

3. Antti Siltala, outside hitter

4. Lauri Kerminen, libero

6. Antti Ronkainen, outside hitter

7. Niko Suihkonen, outside hitter

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
