The head coach of the French men’s volleyball national team Laurent Tillie has called up 21 players for the international duty.
There is no name of Laurent's son, Kevin, who is currently recovering from shoulder injury. Does it mean that he is not going to play for France in 2017?
"This upcoming season is going to be very interesting. We have a difficult World Championship Qualification tournament which is our primary goal. Then, we will go for World League final six. After this tournament, we will try to retain the European Championship trophy," says Tillie for French Volleyball Federation website.
These are 21 players that have been called for the international duty:
Setters: Benjamin Toniutti, Antoine Brizard, Pierre Pujol, Meliuahel Takaniko
