I am very proud of the girls, we had a lot of mistakes also in this match, those makes me angry of course, but right now only the joy of winning a medal is important”
Piroska Szamoránsky, lineplayer of Hungary:
“We have realised our goal, and at the same time a dream came true: I am playing at the national team from 2006 and this is my first medal ever.
I don’t wish any other Christmas present, I am very satisfied with this one too..”
Karl-Erik Böhn, Hungarian head-coach:
” I would like to say a big thanks to my team, they made a fantastic match, had fought hard and they deserved the medal.
We defeated the host nation in a fantastic atmosphere, they gave us a good fight, we had big respect to them and they made possible to play an exciting match here.
This is the biggest succes of my handball coach career and I am very proud of my team.”
Andrea Lekic, Serbian backplayer:
” I am very sad of course, as all of my team-mates, because we wanted so badly that medal, but we failed today. Hungarian team had cooler heads in the last five minutes, when the result of the match was eventually decided.
On the other hand I am very glad, because our team was nowhere in the last years, and no we are on a fourth place in Europe.
Even we did not win today, I am convinced that our performance will help to the development of the handball as a sport in Serbia.”
