The Bulgaria National Team achieved the 2nd consecutive win at the 2020 European Men’s Volleyball Olympic Qualifier in Berlin, Germany.



After a surprising 3-2 win over France on Monday, Bulgaria claimed a clean win over the Netherlands, today, to record the 2nd success in the European Men’s Qualification Tournament in Berlin: 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-15). Tsvetan Sokolov poured in 13 points for the winning side, while Nimir Abdel-Aziz scored 15 for the “Oranje”.

The team coached by Italian Silvano Prandi tops the ranking of Pool B with 5 points. Today’s victory means that Bulgaria don’t need to beat Serbia in the last round to qualify for the semifinals, but only to take 2 sets against them.

Worst Dutch men team ever.
I can’t believe. I can’t understand why.
Soooo bad!
Why Maan in the starting line? Why Ter Horst so bad? He may change position, he cannot even make a medium reception.
Abdel Aziz played alone but in low level for his standards.
