The Hungarian national team will participate in a preperation tournament in Ukraine with teams like: Ukraine, Russia,
Macedonia, Netherland and Czech Republic. The tournament is called Turchin-cup and will take place in the upcoming weekend.
Three players from the large squad are injured: Szandra Zácsik has been operated with a shoulder injury, Krisztina Trischuk is in recovery after a leg-injury and Anita Cifra has a shoulder injury too, which will be treated. The last two players have chances to catch the ECh.
Karl Erik Bøhn shared his thoughts about the preparation and the tournament:
” We will start our preparation in a tournament where the result won’t be the most important issue. We would like to form the team, getting in a good shape to the Europeans. Ukraine and Macedonia will be two good opponents in a preparation period, where on the first place will be the restitution of the players. All the players are after a hard period, in the Hungarian League and a lot of CL and European cup games.
Our group at ECh is a very balanced one, where every team can defeat every of the opponents. The same is valid to my team, if we are in a good shape, we can defeat Croatia, Germany or Spain also, but the opposite of this can happen too.”
