Czechia lift the trophy after 18 years

Article

The two undefeated teams in this year’s edition of the competition - Türkiye and Czechia met in Gradska Sportska Dvorana Varazdin, Croatia, to determine the winner. In the end, it was the team of head coach Jiri Novak who stopped the domination of the Turkish players (who, before the final, had lost only two sets). After a fierce and balanced battle, the Czech players showed precision and nerves of steel in the important moments, finishing slightly better on attack - 61 to 55. Türkiye, on the other hand, were better on the blocking (eight to six), and aced one more time (six to five).
Jan Galabov became once again Czechia’s trump card (top scorer with 21 points), while for Türkiye, Adis Lagumdzija recorded 19, but it wasn’t enough for a better outcome.


With Efe Bayram on fire right after the first referee whistle (three points in a row), Türkiye seemed to have started on the right foot in the match. However, on the other side of the net, the team of the Czech Republic also stepped up their game, led by Patrik Indra (6pts. in the set). The teams started a race for each point, but the players, coached by Jiri Novak, were able to seize their chances (20-16), but even a time out for Türkiye didn’t work out, as with a final touch, Jan Galabov brought the 25th point to the Czech team.

It looked like that Türkiye were back on track in the second set, as they were leading throughout the most of it. However, Czechia’s players showed great mental strength, and even when they were four points behind (16-20), with Jiri Srb on the serve, and empowered Galabov and Marek Sotola, the Czech came back, to even take the lead at 23-22 in their favour, and afterwards, get closer to the win. Precisely, Galabov was the star of his team in these minutes, with 14 points to his name by that time of the match. Statistically, the set was balanced, as only one more winning spike, one more ace and one less error sealed the deal for the Czech Republic.

Türkiye refused to give up, and with team efforts, were able to lead throughout the most of the set (9-7, 15-13), оr when they would feel their rivals close, they would count on leader Adis Lagumdzija, who didn’t disappoint, especially after the 20th point. However, it was the better performance on the blocking (four to one) and stronger serve that helped Türkiye to get back on their feet.

Czecia didn’t lose concentration, and started leading comfortably in the fourth set (10-7, 13-10, 16-12). Türkiye pushed hard, starting breathing their opponents’ necks (16-17, 20-21), with Adis Lagumdzija taking responsability for the important balls, stealing the spotlight. Despite his efforts, the Czech remained the more concentrated team, and with an ace by Martin Licek claimed the title.

“It's beautiful, I don't know what to say. They say that champions finish with an ace, and I'm glad we did it today and got the gold. It was the serve and the reception that helped us! I think we enjoyed it more than the Turks.”

Martin Licek
Player of Czechia

It's great! Before this match, we didn't have any super high hopes that we could do it. We did it on the field, the tactical stuff helped us, and we pulled it off. We went into it with a clear head because we had nothing to lose. The Turks were the clear favourites, maybe that's why we played better, and we could go head-to-head.”

Jan Galabov
Player of Czechia

“I am happy that we did it, and it is actually the first gold medal for me, because I have only silver medals from the Czech Cup and the Czech league. I was very happy after the match against Ukraine because it was a tough opponent that we managed, and today we wanted to enjoy it. We told ourselves that since we are here, and we have a chance to play for the title, we will just do it!

Milan Moník
Player of Czechia

“The feelings are beautiful, and I feel satisfaction for the hard work that has borne fruit after the month and a half. All we had to do was to believe, and even though we made things a bit difficult for ourselves today, but luckily for us, luck has turned our way. We were told today at training that it could be our first title since 2004, but we didn't dwell on it, we were focused on the game and I think it will come to us in the later days or weeks.”

Adam Zajíček
Captain of Czechia

“The energy and quality was there today. We made a few meaningless mistakes, but I'm surprised myself how they dominated the game. Compared to last year's European Championships there are five new players and yet the team is pedalling and playing well. The players are getting a day off now because they are playing for basically the 11th month in a row. We will meet on 11 July, prepare for 14 days and then fly to Korea for the Challenger Cup.”

Jiří Novák
Head coach of Czechia
