EuroVolley: Diouf’s show against Switzerland, Belgium better than France

EuroVolley is on and there is some news from group B. Italy had a short game against Switzerland and Belgium has shown their good side in match with France.   Italy – Switzerland 3:0 (25:13, 25:11, 25:13) Italy: Diouf (18), Bosetti C. (7), Signorile, Costagrande (8), Guiggi (13), Arrighetti (8), De Gennaro (libero), Sorokaite (2), Bosetti L. Switzerland: Bannwart, Steinemann (3), Granvorka (4), Sirucek, Halter Result of this game wasn’t surprise for us. As we expected, team from Italy won very quickly, without using too much strength. The most noticeable player was Valentina Diuof, who scored 18 points. The Swiss couldn’t deal with her wonderful actions and when we add their own mistakes there wasn’t any hope for triumph. The coach of Switzerland, Svetlana Ilic has decided that his team need to change their usual formation to surprise opponents, but this brave move didn’t work. Italians very easy took control of the game, which was he result of very well playing in block (one of the best players in this element was Caterina Bosetti) and serve.
