Lausanne, Switzerland, February 6, 2020 - What makes a great team? It is a question coach Laurent Tillie is sure to be asking himself again as France prepare for the 2020 FIVB Volleyball Nations League and Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

We asked France's long-standing coach the question during last year's edition of the VNL. Watch the video below.

France qualified for the volleyball tournament at Tokyo 2020 after defeating Germany in the final of the European qualification tournament in January. They will take on reigning Olympic champions Brazil, USA, back-to-back VNL winners Russia, Argentina and Tunisia in Men's Pool B.
