Russia’s rising stars poised to contest #EuroVolleyU17M qualifier
2019 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship - Men

Anapa, Russia, April 24, 2019. For the second season in a row, the ‘Voley Grad’ sports complex in Anapa will be hosting a European qualifier, as hosts Russia welcome the national teams of Hungary, the Netherlands and Slovakia in a tournament where a spot in the Final Round of this year’s #EuroVolleyU17M will be at stake.

Vladimir Khromenkov, head coach of Russia: “Our team moved to the venue well in advance to have the opportunity to start the preparation as per the same conditions we will have during the tournament. While preparing for the European qualifier, we played some friendly matches with the national team of Belarus, where we tested different options in terms of line-up, because there are several players who have joined the national team for the first time and they do not have any experience in such high-level competitions. The players who did well in Minsk will defend the honour of our country in this qualification. The team is in a very good physical shape, but our result will largely depend on the psychological side, because we have very strong opponents and it will be the first official international competition for some our players.”
