Men’s Italvolley is European champion: Slovenia beaten 3-2. It is an encore after the triumph of women

Men’s Italvolley is European champion. After the Olympic disappointment, the Azzurri, in full re-foundation after the farewell of Juantorena and with Fefè De Giorgi on the bench for just a month, they beat the Slovenia per 3-2 in the final in Katowice. Protagonist, especially in the fourth set and in the tie-break, Daniele Lavia e Yuri Romanò. And the usual Alessandro Michieletto.

Italvolley starts badly, loses the first set 25-20, but gets up in the second. Slovenia is a square team and, driven by thousands of fans who have come in Poland, you also take the third. The Azzurri in short, they are forced to chase, always. But they don’t give up an inch. Spectacular the fourth set, dominated, and mentally even more amazing the tie-break. Under 3-0, Italvolley changes register in an amen: draw with Romanò, push with Lavia and fly on 11-7 with two aces from Michieletto.

Lavia again responds to the Slovenian reaction and an error in serving is worth 13-9. Ricci puts on the ground the point that is worth five match-points, Romanò misses (14-10) e Giannelli deceives everyone. Her point is on the ground, but she is called invasion. But Slovenia misses and Italy is European champion 16 years after the last time. And it is an encore after the triumph of women, in one of the last days of the most beautiful summer for Italian sport.
