The French Volleyball Federation (FFV) informed that the main star of its Men’s National Team, Earvin Ngapeth, will miss the most of the preliminary round at the upcoming CEV European Men’s Championship!

 

Due to rib injury, Ngapeth will miss the start of the 2019 EuroVolley and his unavailability to play is estimated to a minimum of three games. In the worst case, to five games! Recall that the one of the best players in the world felt a flank pain (the side of a body between the ribs and the hip) during the warm-up for the test match against Germany. Ngapeth spent Monday in a hospital in Montpellier and underwent an ultrasound and an MRI after which the nature of his injury became clearer.

On the other hand, good news came regarding the condition of Trévor Clévenot. The ultrasound of his adductor showed that he did not sustain injury and, therefore, he will resume training with the group for the first match at the EuroVolley against Romania, on Thursday, September 12.

France Head Coach Laurent Tillie decided to re-summon Thibault Rossard in order to have an outside hitter more in the roster. He will replace his cousin Nicolas Rossard in the final list for the continental championship, which is yet to be announced.

EUROVOLLEY 2019 M: Vital Heynen’s surprise – makes 6 substitutions at once (VIDEO)

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
