Italy-Canada 3-1

Italy grants an encore in Laciano and greets Abruzzo by beating, after Croatia, also Canada with the result of 3-1 (25-21; 26-28; 25-22; 25-23).

An important confidence boost with which to close the DHL Test Match Tournament 2023 and the two weeks of intense work carried out in Lanciano in view of the departure (Sunday, May 28) to Turkey where the girls of CT Davide Mazzanti will play, in Antalya, the first Pool of the Volleyball Nations League.

Paola Egonu was born in Cittadella, in the province of Padua, in 1998. Her parents are of Nigerian origin; it is said that her father, when the future volleyball champion was very young, was seriously considering changing her sport, diverting her to basketball. We will never know if Paola would have become a great basketball player, but for sure, as far as volleyball is concerned, she is at the top at the planetary level. In 2022 she left Italy to move to Turkey and defend the colors of VakıfBank Istanbul.
