Andrea Zorzi in his World League blog recently wrote that the way Argentina is playing is ‘like Barcelona play football, beautifully’. Thanks to this site, I’ve just watched them play a little bit and while I don’t necessarily agree with Zorzi’s characterisation it certainly seems that they are playing very well. And they do have a Messi-like figure in the team. The setter De Cecco is very, very good. His control and execution is exceptional. I don’t know if it’s possible to have a Messi in volleyball, but if Argentina in volleyball is like Barcelona in football, then De Cecco is like Messi.
