The 2016 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World League Final Six is just around the corner. Since there is only 24 hours before one of the most important major volleyball tournaments sets off, it is time to analyze the contestants.


 

Roberto Santilli, Italian expert who is doing a great job with Australia National Team, agreed to share some of his thoughts for WorldofVolley on the teams and players performing at the Final Six and possible outcome of the tournament.

See the schedule of the Final Six.

Which teams are favorites to win the Final Six?

“It’s hard to say. France and Brazil above all but also Italy and USA are growing up fast. I could say Serbia, but they lost Atanasijević. I see a very balanced final...”

Which details might decide the winners?

“The team condition. We all had short time to prepare for the World League, especially before the Olympics. So, most of the teams are not at their top like Italy, USA or Poland.”

From which player do you expect to highlight at the tournament?

“Every team has a player that can make a difference inside the group: Ngapeth for France, Juantorena for Italy, Kurek for Poland, and so on. Maybe the team which is mostly balanced is Brazil...”

Do you think that teams might save themselves for the Olympic Games and not reveal entire potential before Rio?

“I don’t believe anyone can hide anything. I think the teams had different preparations so they are in a different condition. For example, France and Poland had to play the Qualification Tournament in Japan and players didn’t have any break after the club season. The general condition of each team will make a big difference now. Everyone has plans at the Olympic Games, except Serbia that could have been a candidate but they lost the most important player, and all summer is organized for it. All those teams are dreaming the Olympic gold medal.” Santilli concluded his interview to our website.

He is a good coach, what he did with Australia is much more above their level

CEV abolished the technical timeouts!

in PlusLiga there are no technical time-outs and thanks to that the games are more interesting to watch, probably because the flow of the game is not disturbed (if only they eliminated 10-minute breaks for commercials after 2 sets it would be perfect...) Reply

TRANSFER EXPLOSION: Zaytsev in Modena – “The most important thanks is for you, Lollo”

Re: @suisse Agree, I was thinking either Modena or Trentino for Zaytsev as an opposite. Modena has to get one strong outside spiker beside Urnaut and one strong middle blocker if they want to compete with Lube and Perugia.
Trentino has to find some great opposite (Djuric if he is healthy) in order to become competitive. Lanza and Kovacevic are not as strong as Juantorena/Leal or Leon/Rusell. If Rusell move to Trentino, and I am not sure why would he since next season is time for Perugia to get some international trophies unless Trentino makes him offer he can't refuse. But then Perugia is without second outside spiker.
Sole went to Verona, which is a surprise. If he came back toTrento, him and Lisinac would make great middle blocker duo.
