At the end of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League final in Chicago, Illinois, USA, the International Volleyball Federation voted the Dream Team of the Final Six.

 

The FIVB has chosen USA’s Matthew Anderson Most Valuable Player of the Final Six, despite his team lost to Russia in the final. This was his second MVP award in the competition under the FIVB. The first one came in the 2015 World Cup. Anderson also earned the Best Opposite award.

“It’s tough to be happy with losing a gold medal match. I am happy with the way that I played but I can play a lot better. I’m going to work really hard these next two weeks before we take off for the qualification as I’m sure all of us are,” Anderson said for the website of the USA Volleyball Federation (USAV).

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply

ITA M: Trentino reject efforts of Verona’s duo Boyer – Asparuhov to stay unbeaten

Giannelli had things cooking and went away from the hot hand in Russell. Kovacevic wasnt his best today but that shows the strength and depth of thia team. Great fight from Verona. The league is a lot of fun thia year. Reply
