Desirable, but undoubtedly difficult to expect a result other than a defeat. The 0-3 paradoxically represents a further step in growth of this Italvolley. Coach De Giorgi launches the “second lines” onto the field and gets very good responses especially from them Porro brothers, by Laurenzano and, in part, by Alessandro Bovolenta. Starting from the latter, the very young opposite alternates shots with great manual skill somewhat glaring errors in playing against the Polish wall and avoiding suffering thunderous shots, especially from Fornal-Kurek. Postponed to one of the first tests in maturity, but not failed at all: Bovolenta possesses all the talent and physical means to become the opposite of Italvolley within five years, perhaps even less. Moving on to the Porro brothers, it seems clear that the Genoese “dynasty” can monopolize the national team in various roles. Luca play a game sublime in attackalternating very narrow diagonals with intelligent parallel or lob shots; Paul instead takes over from Riccardo Sbertoli for the change of main diagonal, impacting the dribble but also from nine meters. Finally, the aforementioned Laurenzano. At just 21 years old, the libero from Trento will not yet be at the levels of the machine Fabio Balaso, but shows an impressive completeness, especially when compared to the date of birth. Clearly important positive aspects, which however counterbalance several situations to review.
