Group C would be the next to analyse, and here you have the opinion of our expert, Eduarda Amorim about it:


Group C: Spain, Hungary, Germany, Croatia

In my opinion Spain will be the team taking the first spot in this group. This is a team which have a  totally different style compared to the others teams –  especially because they know how to play without the ball .


The Spanish players have excellent individual and technical skills, and in the attack they can play really close to the opponent’s defense, making it really difficult for every team  to stop them.

The key-players like Silvia Navarro, Macarena Aguilar and Carmen Martin have gained the necessary experience to push the team in the top of this tournament.

This is a really balanced group, but I mean that Hungary takes the second spot. They have not qualified  for the World Championship in 2011, neither for the Olympics so I think this team is vey “hungry” to play again.

Hungary is a mix of players from the two Hungarian clubs: FTC and Győri Audi ETO, which are performing exceptionally in Champions Leauge this season. I wonder how they will react without Katalin Pálinger in the goal (retired), but in the hands of head-coach Karl Erik Bøhn, the team will be showing a stronger defense and better performance.

I think that Anita Görbicz and  Zsuzsanna Tomori will be the leaders, taking the team to the second spot in this group.


Croatia is missing two important  players: Miranda Tatari and Andrea Penezic , and this fact will have a significant influence on their performance.

Despite this, I still believe that Croatians are able doing a good job since they have a well trained team and quality players who played together for a long time.

I guess that the battle for the third qualifying spot in this group will be fought between Croatia and Germany.

Germany is a young and interesting team. They are building up a strong team for the WCh organised at home-court (2017)  and they have  players with a very high potential.


The most experienced players at the German team are Anja Althaus and  goalkeeper Clara Woltering. They will for sure  help the performance of their team, in the fight for the third place of the group.
