Earvin Ngapeth led France toward the 2nd win at the Rio 2016 volleyball tournament.



France outplayed Canada much easier than anyone expected, especially because the red and white crew entered this match as a team who defeated USA and who made a lot of trouble to Brazil. However, Canada were simply no match to France and to their best player Earvin Ngapeth.

French volleyball star scored 21 points. For example, that was more than Canada scored in any of the sets! With Ngapeth on fire, France had no problems to collect very important win in the race for the knockout stage.

Canada – France 0:3

Canada: Sanders 2, Perrin 1, Hoag 11, Verhoeff, Duff 3, Jansen Vandoorn, Schmitt 9, Winters 2, Vigrass 7, Bann, Blankenau, Marshall 4.

France: Grebennikov, Rouzier 13, Clevenot, Toniutti, Tillie 6, Ngapeth 21, Le Roux 6, Pujol, Le Goff 8, Marechal, Lafite, Rossard.

Group A: Italy 2-0 (6 points), Brazil 2-0 (6 points), France 2-1 (6 points), Canada 1-2 (3 points), USA 0-2 (0 points), Mexico 0-2 (0 points).

It would be nice to put a video on You Tube, otherwise it would be only history and statistics…. It was really a concert of creativity of E. NGapeth and a setter B.Toniutti , which is difficult to repeat in every match.. Such a performance and skill attracts young players to copy it and invites fans from all over the world to watch volleyball. Unfortunately it has also other side – jealousy of some players, which was articulated by players from Italian NT, after match with France…. Earvin N. has to cope with it…Moreover he proved that the excelent performance could be done with smile, instead of extreme shouting and artificial emotions what some players, including women p., do… Hope he will keep it on, since he is not any saint…
