TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Asian powerhouse Iran looks to bring it up a notch with eye on FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) semifinals.
Iran has been leaving its mark on the 2021 VNL rising from 10th place in the inaugural edition of 2018 to advancing to making the Final Six and finishing 5th in 2019.
And now it’s looking to move things up a bit as it aims for a spot in the last four when the competition returns next month with its third edition at the Italian Adriatic resort of Rimini, volleyball.world reported.
Amir Ghafour was the top scorer overall of the 2019 VNL with a total of 249 points - but the question is can Russian legendary coach Vladimir Alekno, who took over the side this year, transform Iran?
