Two EuroVolley participants reach World Championship Semi-finals

Warm-artThe Semi finals of the FIVB Men’s World Championship 2010 will take place on Saturday at the Palalottomatica in Rome. The participation of two European Nations underlines the quality of the EuroVolley 2011 next year: Host Italy faces titleholder Brazil, while Cuba will play against Serbia. The Brazilians will have to overcome a difficult environment. The Stadium will be packed with 15.500 Fans, most of them cheering for the home team.

 

Most of the teams who qualified for the EuroVolley 2011 were also competing in the FIVB 2010 Men’s World Championships (September 25 to October 10) in Italy. Besides the team of host Italy, also Bulgaria, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, the Czech Republic and Serbia could be found among the 24 participants. The only European team qualified for the World Championship but not for the European Championship 2011 is Spain.

 

Not less than 8 European teams could be found among the 12 teams qualified for the third round. Only Poland did not make it beyond the second round: the reigning European Champion was defeated by the reigning World Champion Brazil and co-favourite Bulgaria.

 

“The world’s top class is in Europe!”

Austria’s coach Michael Warm is impressed by the strong performance of the European teams at the FIVB Men’s World Championship 2010 in Italy but he is not surprised: “The results of the European teams at the World Championship underline the dominant role of the Europeans in volleyball. In addition, we can now imagine the high standards of the upcoming European Championship. In a way the European Championship will be harder than the World Championship because some Asian or African teams do not yet have this high quality. Apparently the world’s top class is at home in Europe. The people in Austria have to realize that we are talking about the world’s top class when we want to reach the top within Europe. And the way ahead to reach this goal is still a long and hard one “, explains Austria’s head coach.

 

Michael Warm pays respect to the good performance of Austria’s co-host Czech Republic: “I did not reckon that the Czech Republic would be so good. Apparently they prepared well for the event.”
