Wilfredo León was visibly nervous at the start of the friendly match against the Netherlands, in which he debuted for Poland Men’s national team, not showing what Polish fans expected. But, in the later stages of the encounter he started to play his powerful Volleyball.


 

“There was no stress because we played a sparring match. The idea was to check what form we are in. But in such games, when you make your debut in a team, the first points are always difficult. Then everything was fine. For me and for the team, the most important thing is that we won 4-0. We played very calm today and it looked good, but I think that in the future we can play even better,” León said to Przegląd Sportowy after making a debut for Poland and added that he was aware that he can serve much better than in the match against the Netherlands (6 errors in 8 serves) and that he was not happy with this element of the game.

He was asked to rate his display on the scale of 1 to 10.

“It was 7 or 8.”

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
