France secure #EuroVolleyU17M spot, Belarus continue as best runner-up
2019 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship - Men

Luxembourg, April 28, 2019. France and Belarus became the last two teams to qualify for the 2019 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship – Men that is due to take place in Bulgaria in July. On Sunday the French team showed great will to win and left no doubts about who was better in their match vs. Ukraine, which they won 3-0. This way France topped the charts in Pool C and congratulated themselves with booking their tickets to the Finals. Belarus, on the other hand, qualify for the Final Round being the best runner-up across all the pools, "catching the last train" to the continental championship. 

Pool C in Zaporizhzhia (UKR)

Only one match was disputed on the very last day of the qualification tournament in Zaporizhzhia. However, the fixture between the hosts from Ukraine and France was a very important one, since the winner from it qualified directly for the Finals of #EuroVolleyU17M, while the loser, depending on the result, could have saved their chances for finishing as best second team in the groups. France did not leave any doubts about who was better as they seized a 3-0 victory (25-19, 29-27, 25-20). Ukraine tried to respond in the second set and tie the match, but despite their great efforts, the French team resisted and emerged victorious in that set too. Disappointed from losing the second set, the Ukrainians couldn’t find their rhythm in the match and lost even the third set, meaning they couldn't take a single point from this matchup. 

Nathan Canovas from France was the best in this match, scoring 22 points and leading his teammates towards the victory and the much desired ticket to the 2019 CEV U17 Volleyball European Championship – Men.
