Featured Players

The newly crowned Olympic champions, France enter their first #EuroVolleyM match as the clear favouirtes against Slovakia. This is their 30th participation at the European Championship.

History says it all. Of the previous seven European winners of the Olympic gold medal, six won the title at the first European Championships held after those Olympic Games. Soviet Union achieved this in 1967, 1971 and 1981, Netherlands in 1997, Yugoslavia in 2001 and Russia in 2013. Only Poland, who won the Olympic title in 1976, failed to achieve this feat when they lost to Soviet Union in the final of the 1977 European Championships.

At the 2019 European Championships, France finished in fourth place after losing in straight sets to Poland in the match for third place.

Slovakia, on the other hand, will make their 11th appearance in the European Championships. Since their debut in 1997, they only missed out on the 1999 and 2005 editions.
Slovakia's best result in the competition was a fifth place in 2011. They finished 19th at the 2019 European Championships.

“We were fighting, we had some good moments, but it was not enough. We were not stable and had problems with side-out in some rotations. It was the basic reason of why we couldn’t manage to finish the sets.”

Peter Michalovic
Opposite of Slovakia

"It was a good game, it was important for us to win and to play well. We really enjoyed the game, this is how we play: we enjoy Volleyball. Even though we are Olympic winners, we still try to win the European Championship, too. But it's difficult both mentally and physically. We have a new staff and we want to prove and push ourselves.”
