The USA have retained the FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League title by turning around the final of the 2019 edition against Brazil from 0-2 to 3-2. The USA’s head coach Karch Kiraly did not spare kind words for the tournament MVP Andrea Drews after the match.

“Wow, Annie. I don’t know how many points she had, but she was huge. Everyone was huge. What a great team win, fall down 2-0 against one of the greatest teams in the world, Brazil. Jordan Larson came in and gave us a great lift, Tori Dixon also. It was a total team win, 14-person plus here, all the other people in our program including the 14 battling in Peru. Total team effort. So much to be proud of. We got better as the match went along. We improved our blocking lineups, had a nice passing lineup in there. Lauren Carlini doing a really nice job of running our offense and distributing,” the U.S. national team head coach Kiraly stated.

Andrea Drews stepped up for the winning side in the gold medal encounter, earning the MVP award.

“I thought we did a real nice job coming back. I think at the beginning we were a little too focused on assignments, maybe where to be or what they would do. But as the match went on, I thought we did a great job of adjusting, reading and just getting scrappier, staying engaged in the long rallies, and it paid off. Super proud of this group, super proud of all the people who were part of the seven weeks of VNL,” the opposite hitter said.

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
