In the final of the World Championship 1990 in Brazil, Italy defeated Cuba 3-1 (12-15, 15-11, 15-6, 16-4) to write the new golden page of the Italian volleyball.

It was an amazing game against the Cubans, that were physically superior compared to the other teams at the tournament. However, the Italian player knew how to defeat the Cubans.

The last point of the game was created by Lorenzo Bernardi and we saw a huge celebration of the Italian boys. Some of them were celebrating in referee’s chair…

These are the players that managed to win the gold medal at the World Championship 1990:

Andrea Anastasi, Lorenzo Bernardi, Marco Bracci, Luca Cantagalli, Ferdinando De Giorgi, Andrea Gardini, Andrea Giani, Andrea Lucchetta, Marco Martinelli, Roberto Masciarelli, Paolo Tofoli, and Andrea Zorzi. Head Coach: Julio Velasco.

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
