    Season 5 was awesome, brought new life to the show after the slump in 4. It's good know that show can still have fresh storylines, even if we had to lose Tom in the process. Reds new (real) daughter is the bomb, can't wait to see more of her, she is already better than Liz

    Quest for ticket to #EuroVolleyU20M Finals has started 
     
    Luxembourg, April 26, 2018. The second round of qualifications for the 2018 CEV U20 Volleyball European Championship – Men started on Thursday with five matches across three pools. Hungary beat Estonia 3-1 in Anapa as Germany and hosts Romania were the winners of the matches contested in Ploiesti where they beat Austria (3-0) and Sweden (3-1), respectively. Portugal stormed to a 3-0 victory over Norway to start proceedings in Pool F in Zrenjanin. The eventual winners of the eight second-round qualifiers will book their ticket to the Finals scheduled for mid-July and due to take place in the Netherlands and Belgium. 

    Pool B in Anapa (RUS) 

    Estonia vs. Hungary 1-3 (19-25, 22-25, 25-18, 23-25) 

    Estonia and Hungary opened the programme of the tournament in Anapa as both teams showed a great determination to win. Hungary claimed an 8-6 lead in the first set with spikes of Kristof Horvath and held on to their initial advantage at 13-10. Urmas Tali, head coach of Estonia, asked for a timeout. It was not very productive and Hungary continued to set the pace of the game until they sealed a 25-19 set win. The early stages of the second set were a close affair but Estonia missed several spikes to prompt another timeout by Tali. Albert Hurt helped them close in at 13-12 and Hungary coach Tibor Tomanoczy stopped the game. It was a close race but Hungary emerged victorious 25-22 with a point scored by Peter Fülöp. 

    Hungary rushed to an 8-5 lead in the third set but Estonia drew level at 11-all with Devin Põlluste and eventually edged ahead at 16-12. The Hungarian team made too many unforced mistakes and their coach opted for several substitutions. However, Estonia moved the score to 22-17 in their favour and Tarvo Täht ended the set for Estonia 25-18. Hungary claimed a 10-6 advantage in the fourth set. Estonia closed in at 10-11 but after a timeout, Hungary edged ahead again for 16-13. After the second technical timeout, the two teams continued to trade points but Hungary attacked more effectively to secure a 3-1 victory. 



    Tibor Tomanoczy, head coach of Hungary: “After winning two sets, we lost focus and concentration. Estonia, on the other hand, started to play better. We made some changes and we eventually won the game. We still have chances to go further in this competition.” 

    Marton Szabo, team captain of Hungary: “We made too many mistakes and sometimes we lost concentration. We need to improve our block and reception.”

    Urmas Tali, head coach of Estonia: “We made stupid mistakes, especially at the beginning of the match. We did not find our game today.” 

    Madis Parrol, player of Estonia: “We had poor reception today and we did not show our real level. We need to improve our game.” 

    Pool E in Ploiesti (ROU) 

    Austria vs. Germany 0-3 (18-25, 10-25, 20-25)

    Germany opened the programme of the tournament in Ploiesti by cruising to a comprehensive 3-0 win over their neighbours from Austria. This is an extremely important result for the young players of head coach Johan Verstappen who found in Lukas Pfretzschner their “man of the match” as this young talent recorded an impressive tally of 19 points. After easily claiming the first set, team captain Eric Burggräf and his team fought for 21 minutes in the second set against their Austrian opponent, before having the upper hand at 25-10 thanks to the contribution of their outside spikers. After that, Germany claimed also a relatively closely fought third set to secure their first victory in the competition.



    Romania vs. Sweden 3-1 (25-23, 22-25, 25-21, 25-23)  

    The second match of the day contested in Ploiesti between Romania and Sweden resulted in a 3-1 victory for the home team. Sweden started the match with a lot of confidence and they dictated the tempo of the game from start to the middle in the first set as the Romanian team, on the other hand, made too many mistakes. The hosts looked a little bit nervous and had some difficulties in reception but by putting more pressure with their serve and using more varied attack combinations, the home team eventually claimed the first set. 

    Sweden started the second set by immediately imposing their tempo. They were better in reception and their setter made it hard for the Romanian blockers to find a way to stop Sweden’s attacks. The home team made many mistakes and this was enough for Sweden to win the second set.

    The third set was just the opposite. The team of Romania showed a better game and the hosts looked a lot more concentrated and focussed. They continued to improve their level as the match progressed and showing more accuracy and efficiency in all aspects of the game, they imposed their rule in both sets 3 and 4 to secure a 3-1 victory.  

    Pool F in Zrenjanin (SRB) 

    Norway vs. Portugal 0-3 (17-25, 21-25, 23-25) 

    In the opening match of the #EuroVolleyU20 qualifier in Zrenjanin, Portugal easily dealt with Norway, eventually claiming a 3-0 victory. The Portuguese boys were better the whole way and Norway was close, especially in the third set, but they lacked experience in the decisive moments.



    “It is always difficult to play the first match at any tournament but we did what we wanted to do, as we booked an important victory,” said Nuno Miguel Pereira, head coach of Portugal.

    “We did not follow the game plan in this match. I guess the boys were overwhelmed by the importance of the game. We needed to push through the middle more, to play tempo actions, and we did not succeed in doing that. Moreover, we had great problems in reception,” said Ole Martin Kleivenes, head coach of Norway.

    Today was a very good day, with two dominators like Fourcade and Loch, not only not winning Gold, but no medal at all.  Plus all finals were interesting and there wasn't a dull event for me.

    While everyone is watching the speed scating, the US and Finland are making a very interesting match in my opinion. US are having trouble with the finns defence and barely equalized a few seconds ago.
