Two of my fave players (Vermiglio and Mastrangelo) are going to play in here, so I think I'm gonna root for Italy, gotta wait and see whether Zaytsev reaches his full potential and gets to be as good as his dad was.

Gigi :hearts: I absolutely adore him! Simone Parodi is also back in the team. I hope Zaytsev injury is in the past so we can see his powerful serves :worship:. Italy will fight for the title! I hope we play them in the semies :D

Gigi is beyond awesome :hearts:
Parodi is back after the great season he had last year, specially at the Scudetto final.
Francesco Fortunato is on as well?

Oh come on :lol:. That's a totally different game with maybe 1% of the tactical nuances and sporting entertainment that real volleyball has.

Hope Finland will do well :yeah:. We've really improved volleyball here, it's probably our best team-sport on an international level (unless you count mickey mouse sports like ice-hockey).

Russia is the great favorite to win the title.

Bulgaria, Italy and Serbia have chances but probably only Italy can win of Russia on the tournament.

Absolutely disgraceful performance from Poland, being outplayed by a team they used to own is just sad to watch.
It's a shadow of the team what won the Championships in 2009.

I am sorry but Poland lost last year at WCH to Bulgaria 3-0 and won this year at WL 3-2. That's hardly own? Besides in volleyball everything changes very quickly and 2 years latter the whole team might be different.
Belgium won over France and Germany losing to Slovakia was a real surprise.

Finland is a very good team, but you need to fire Castelani to achive something :(

Italy-France has the potential of being an absolute cracker and it will decide the first one of the group.

Austria and Estonia getting PWNED as predicted :o

Mastrangelo has played good in the first matches, Savani as well.

We lost 2:3 in World League, but it's now very complicated, we shouldn't be second because we will go to Russia in 1/4 finals :sad:
