Actually, the same 14 players who took part in the test matches against Estonia and Italy are included.

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.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
