Ten years ago Italy won their first ever FIVB World Cup in women’s category.

 

The first matches at the FIVB World Cup in Japan 2007 were played on November 2 and Italy started the competition with the victory over Thailand. 

The tournament was played by the single Round-Robin system and Italy scored 11 wins, losing only two sets from Serbia

That year they defeated Thailand, Dominican Republic, Korea, Serbia, Japan, Poland, Kenya, Peru, Brazil, Cuba, and USA. As the winners, “Azzurre” qualified to the Olympic Games 2008 with Brazil and USA who won the silver and bronze medals.

Simona GIOLI was named for the MVP and the best blocker of the tournament.

BRA W: American setter officially in Barueri

She couldn't refuse such an offer, with such a trainer as Ze Roberto is lucky! Cool have a team at Hinode Barueri. Star on the star. Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69
Have you watch or seen the statistics of the final of Champions League?
Ivan Zaytsev with 14 pts 11 spikes(60% kill with only one fault)
Atanasijevic with only 9 pts 6 kills(32% 4 faults)

Conclusion:
Let's get rid of Zaytsev. Just funny. lol Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69 Check their wins. How many gold medals they have with Leon? How many gold medals they achieved without him? Zenit Kazan will be in bit trouble against the other heavyweights in Russia and Europe. With him on your side they dominated everyone besides Sada Cruzeiro until last year.
Anderson is getting old. He is very mediocre nowadays. He is not important to Zenit Kazan anymore. Only his serve is good. Mikhailov will soon be at his thirties. Poletaev may be good but he needs to prove himself in another club while Mikhailov still reigns supreme as Russia's best opposite.


Atanasijevic's contract will end this year. Same as Zaytsev. One of them will leave if Wilfredo Leon signs a contract with Perugia
Atanasijevic should leave. He chokes in crucial moments. I'd rather have Zaytsev who plays with all his heart, a more reliable player in the end game and a complete player with all the skills in the world a player could ask for. He is also a better team player.
