AVC invented a new stupid/crazy format for all its competitions. they seed teams based on previous competitions. top 3 teams in Group A. next 3 in Group B .... and then everybody enter the knockout round. for example during the Asian Women's Club Champs most teams didn't know who is the their next opponent until they get the official schedule the night before the match :d

 

but now we have Asian U20 Champs in Bahrain. again with the same crazy format but also with full of surprises. Japan for the first time ever failed to even enter top 8 because they lost to Chinese Taipei which also lost to Thailand but we will have Iraq in semifinal !! they just beat China :yikes::yikes:

 

funny note: Malaysia finished last despite winning a match vs Maldives ! and Maldives will finish 22nd without a single win thanks to this super crazy format.

Today Brazil and USA women's teams returned to the Maracanazinho Arena for a friendly match. Not the best memories for both teams considering that exactly 2 years ago USA lost the Rio 2016 semifinal there (and Brazil lost that quarterfinal match two days earlier). Anyway, Brazil lost ALL 4 friendly matches against USA this week, not a good sign for the coming World Championship...

 

The best part was a tribute to the 2008 Olympic champion team, with many of the players from that gold generation. Today, only Thaísa remains playing for Brazil (she isn't in the picture because she was preparing for the match today), even though some of them are still active in their clubs.
