Legendary libero Hubert Henno played the last game in his professional volleyball career as France Men’s national team member.
In the show, that was held at the Robert-Grenon hall in Tours, the hall in which he competed for the last four season, the 42-year-old Henno said a final goodbye to professional volleyball.
After completing his club career in early May by winning the French double crown (Championship and Cup) with Tours, the libero played his ultimate match, the 254th, with the national team of France. In a great show organized by the French Volleyball Federation that brought together all players of the current France national team, who is about to start the 2019 FIVB Nations League, Henno played with the White team together with Jean Patry, Julien Lyneel, Nicolas Le Goff, Thibault Rossard, Yacine Louati, and Barthélémy Chinenyeze. They beat the Blue team, with Jenia Grebennikov, Jonas Aguenier, Raphaël Corre, Kevin Tillie, Daryl Bultor, Trévor Clevenot, and Timothée Carle by a 2-1, with this partials 25:22, 32:34, 25:16.
Carle, who will play next season in Italy, Vibo Valentia, together with Chinenyeze, was the top scorer of the match with 26 points, while Henno showed a notable farewell display by making 67% positive reception.
Recall that the two-time FIVB World Championship and CEV EuroVolley Best Libero Henno, has been recently appointed Tours head coach.
