Romania Men’s national team claimed the title in the 2019 CEV Volleyball European Silver League with a double win over Greece in the final.


After beating Greece in five sets in the first leg on the road, Romania had a chance to win the 2019 CEV European Silver League in front of own crowd in Alexandria and grabbed it with both hands: 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-21).

Romania, who finished the pool stage unbeaten (6-0; 18 points), will replace the lowest ranked team from this year’s European Golden League, which is Finland, in the 2020 edition of the tournament.

Mihai Gheorghiţă led Romania’s scorers in the second leg with 15 points, while Răzvan Florentin Mihalcea made 6 kill blocks. The outside hitter of Romania, Rareş Ionuţ Bălean, was named MVP of the finals. Nikos Zoupani tallied 20 points for Greece.

By this, Romania completed a clean sweep of the European Silver League after their Women’s national team prevailed over Slovenia in the final.

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
