Karl Erik Böhn: my team let behind yesterday’s defeat

Karl Erik Böhn after Hungary collected their first points against Germany:

“It was a fantastic match, and I am very impressed about the way my team had worked together and had fought. I have to recognise that I almost lost my faith after Germany took the lead by 1-6, preparing to travel home, hoping to not lose with a big difference. But my team has showed that there is no lost ball  and lost match, before the final whistle. They have fought in such a way I have never experienced before, they took the control over the match,  they had simply wanted to win today. I couldn’t  forget the match against Croatia, but they did it, and that was decisive.

Now I think that we are able to get a victory against Spain, if we are defending like today and improving our attack  so we could be very dangerous against everyone..”

Heine Jensen, Germany’s head-coach:

” We have played a very good match regarding the defence and counter attack, but we could not find the appropriate distance in attack. We also did some silly mistakes at the end of the match when it was tie, and we lost the ball three times in that period. We knows Hungary very well, we could predict what will they play, but we could not stop them anyway.

The positiv thing is that if we will defeat Croatia on Friday, so we have chances to advance to the Main Round, it depends also on the result of the match between Hungary and Spain.”
