the French team crowned in the League of Nations after a suspenseful scenario against the United States

The French volleyball team won its third title in the League of Nations (formerly World League) this Sunday by dominating the United States in the final (three sets to two). The Blues, who led two sets to zero, still had big scares when they saw the Americans return to two sets everywhere.

Barely arrived at the position of coach, Andrea Giani already offers a title with the France team. The Blues of volleyball won the League of Nations this Sunday evening by dominating the United States in the final (three sets to two), in Bologna. And the scenario makes the coronation even sweeter for the French, titled for the third time in this competition after 2015 and 2017 (it was in the World League, the ancestor of the League of Nations).

They never do anything like everyone else and have a certain taste for rebounding… The French were perhaps even a little surprised to see themselves turned in two sets to nothing, after an absolutely stunning start to the match. Maybe it was a little too good and American pride fought back. The USA then returned to two sets everywhere, after a one-sided fourth round.

The World Cup in August

Everything was therefore played in a tie-break that was ultimately rather comfortable for the French team, which made the difference on an excellent series of serves from Antoine Brizard. Inspirations from Earvin Ngapeth and Brizard still at the net did the rest. Third title in this competition for the Blues, the first under the aegis of their new coach Andrea Giani. Next meeting next month, in Poland and Slovenia.
