Brazil national team will open the FIVB Women’s Volleyball International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (August 1-4) with the match against Cameroon at 19:15 C.E.T.

 

A day before the beginning of the International Qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Brazil head coach José Roberto Guimarães “Zé Roberto“ selected 14 players that will take part in the competition.

Despite the fact that 3 big names returned to the “Seleção“ for tournaments in 2019 after a while, only one of them found herself in the list – the libero Suelen Pinto.

If the challenge video is not shown in the stadium, then it leaves room for corruption to move in (some would argue it is already here). If a referee decision does not go your way, it is only natural you would want to see evidence as proof. Reply
