Linn Kristin Riegelhuth-Koren:


“It was a superb game and I am very really proud of my team. We managed to focus hundred percent on this match and we played like a team.

There were a lot of people who underestimated us after the defeat in the first leg, but the pay we showed today was fantastic. I mean that we deserve a big praise. We have realized a huge thing, we are in the CL-final again.

We made many mistakes in the first match, me and the whole team and today we managed to correct these mistakes and every of us showed a really good shape.

The whole team added to this game everything we had and we showed a totally different attitude than last week.”

“I am very happy to be in a CL-final, it was always mine highest target to reach, and that’s why I mean that this is totally amazing what we realized today. I was restless the whole day, I was awake ten o’clock in the morning and I was wondering how can I go through the whole day, since the match was scheduled only 20.30 in the evening.

A lot of thoughts has came and gone, but I think that every of them helped me today, because I made a good game, everything worked perfect for me tonight.

We made a really good match, every player had been motivated to win this match.

Agaisnt Győr we feel that we are in an attacking position, since we were defeated twice of them  this season, so we should use this fact and try to defeat them.”

Linn Jørum Sulland:

” I am really glad to be able to help my team with a good performance, which I could not show in the last match. I had this strange feeling the whole day, that this could go only our way, because every of my teammates were so prepared and we were looking for this match. Our mentality is strong, I could feel, that nobody could defeat us today, we started weaker, but after some misses we started to play as we can.

It’s a fantastic feeling to be again in CL-semifinal, I am sure that both halls will be outsold for these matches, and this which gives the meaning of this sport.

About Győr: despite the fact that Győr defeated us twice earlier this season, every of us are aware of the fact that we can do this and we will fight for the trophy. In my opinion we have our chances against Győr also.”

” This week I was thinking that these result, to lay under with two goals before the second leg it could be nothing more than a really good motivation for us, it will keep us awake the whole match and will be much more usefull than if we are in advantage.

On the other hand, Krim played its cards in the second half in Larvik, when they had to keep the advantage they managed to get in the first part, and then we saw that they have their weaknesses, which we could exploit here.

 I will play my fifth CL-final, it’s something huge for a handball players’s career to reach that. On the other hand, the opponent in the final is Győr, so two of the best team’s will face each other, where almost the best players of the world gathered, so I expect a very exciting fight.
Personally I am touched, every time is such a big deal…
Today we got the qualification here s a team, and if we will get the trophy this is the correct recipe to use, but we have a , lot of work to do.”
