The debut of Wilfredo León for Poland Men’s Volleyball national team is certainly a hot topic this week. One of his close friends might follow his footsteps and apply for Polish citizenship as well!

 

Wilfredo León had the entire hall in Opole cheering for him in his debut for Poland. Among those fans was his compatriot and close friend, who competes in the Polish top division – David Fiel.

A 25-year-old middle blocker, who is currently a member of 9-time PlusLiga champions PGE Skra Bełchatów, was deeply touched by the way León has been supported in his way towards getting Polish citizenship and gaining the right to play for Poland national team.

“I feel very excited to see my ’brother’ making his dream come true! He’s an amazing player and I saw him working hard to achieve this goal! So, I can feel very happy just as he feels! And I wish him all the best - and congratulations!“ Fiel, who won the 2014 Pan-American Cup and took part in the 2014 FIVB World Championship with Cuba national team, stated in an interview for Skra website.

He was asked if he was also thinking of getting Polish citizenship and he admitted that he was considering it.

“I like the question! (laughs). To be honest, soon I’ll be here for 4 years, so it’s something that I’m thinking about all the time. I really like Poland, its culture, people and how important for them is volleyball. I feel that my present and future is here, in Poland. I have a big part of my life here: my wife, my career and, for sure, our family soon. I hope that, as soon as possible, you’ll be able to call me the Polish guy with Cuban heart!“ Fiel, who married a Polish woman in 2015, added.

I dont think have the level to play in the Polish Nt, he wasnt remarkable when he was in Cuba NT like Leon, and in Belchatow he is like the 3rd or 4th MB, behind of more experienced and with more name players, like Klos etc

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
