FRA M: Laurent Tillie announces list of 21 players, one big name missing


2923 0

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?

It is interesting to see potential Antonin Rouzier’s successors, as he decided to retire at the end of the last season from Team Yavbou jersey.

"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

Opposites: Jean Patry, Stephen Boyer, Timothee Carle

Receivers: Earvin Ngapeth, Trevor Clevenot, Julien Lyneel, Guillaume Quesque, Thibault Rossard, YAcine Louati

Middle blockers: Kevin Le Roux, Nicolas Le Goff, Jonas Aguenier, Horacio D’Almeida, Daryl Bultor, Barthelemy Chinenyeze

Liberos: Jenia Grebennikov, Nicolas Rossard

TURNAROUND: FIVB awards last wild card for 2017 Club World Championship to Dinamo!

It is all about entrance 'fees': because Moscow has more money than Conegliano and the last couldn't or didn't want to pay those 100.000 US $, Moscow took over. If this is the right way to distribute the (too?) many (4) wildcards, everybody should decide on his own. Reply

She will leave because Nesli, even though she has years, must play and she didn't play so much last season. That's the main reason Reply
