Montenegro poised to play #EuroVolleyU17M qualifier on home soil
2019 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship - Men

Podgorica, Montenegro, April 20, 2019. The U17 men’s national team of Montenegro started earlier this week their preparations for the 2nd Round European qualifier that they will be hosting next week in Herceg Novi and where they are due to play Greece, Austria and Belarus in Pool E.

“Since all players came straight from their clubs, which means from training, they are in good shape. Almost all the team members were starters in their teams through the pre-youth season, and even in the youth league, so they had a satisfactory number of games during the year. The expectations from the qualifications are not great, and the most important thing is to look at ourselves, to see how much we progressed from last summer and the Balkan Championship in Turkey, and to focus on the details to improve our game. The opponents in this tournament have a certain quality, and on paper, they are stronger than us. However, we play on home court, and that is why we are obliged to give our best performance, which I hope will result in victories and taking a few points from our pool,” said head coach Predrag Ćorluka.

Montenegro’s extended roster for the #EuroVolleyU17M qualifier includes the following players:

Aleksa Strahinja (Galeb Poliklinika Hipokrat), Relja Nikčević (Budućnost Capital Plaza) and Avram Božović (Galeb Poliklinika Hipokrat)
