The debut of Wilfredo León for Poland Men’s Volleyball national team is certainly a hot topic this week. One of his close friends might follow his footsteps and apply for Polish citizenship as well!

 

Wilfredo León had the entire hall in Opole cheering for him in his debut for Poland. Among those fans was his compatriot and close friend, who competes in the Polish top division – David Fiel.

A 25-year-old middle blocker, who is currently a member of 9-time PlusLiga champions PGE Skra Bełchatów, was deeply touched by the way León has been supported in his way towards getting Polish citizenship and gaining the right to play for Poland national team.

“I feel very excited to see my ’brother’ making his dream come true! He’s an amazing player and I saw him working hard to achieve this goal! So, I can feel very happy just as he feels! And I wish him all the best - and congratulations!“ Fiel, who won the 2014 Pan-American Cup and took part in the 2014 FIVB World Championship with Cuba national team, stated in an interview for Skra website.

He was asked if he was also thinking of getting Polish citizenship and he admitted that he was considering it.

“I like the question! (laughs). To be honest, soon I’ll be here for 4 years, so it’s something that I’m thinking about all the time. I really like Poland, its culture, people and how important for them is volleyball. I feel that my present and future is here, in Poland. I have a big part of my life here: my wife, my career and, for sure, our family soon. I hope that, as soon as possible, you’ll be able to call me the Polish guy with Cuban heart!“ Fiel, who married a Polish woman in 2015, added.

I dont think have the level to play in the Polish Nt, he wasnt remarkable when he was in Cuba NT like Leon, and in Belchatow he is like the 3rd or 4th MB, behind of more experienced and with more name players, like Klos etc

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
