Italy Men’s Volleyball National Team might get reinforcement for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.


Gian Luca Pasini wrote in his blog that Jiří Kovář might return to Italy National Team after nearly five years.

The Czech-born has been having many problems regarding his career since 2018 that included a doping affair and injury and hasn’t been summoned to play for the “Azzurri“ since the 2014 FIVB World Championship. However, the head coach of Italy Men, Gianlorenzo Blengini, plans to call Kovář for the preparations for the Tokyo Olympics next year. After all, Blengini is well-acquainted with the abilities of the 30-year-old outside hitter knowing that he worked with him in Cucine Lube Civitanova, for which Kovář is still playing, from 2015 to 2017.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
