János Hajdú, head-coach, Hungary:

” It was a tipically preparation match, where my team had problems with defense and to stop the fast offensive play of the opponent. We had some good periods, both in attack and defense, against a well prepared, technically skilled team. Our shape is as expected in this period of preparation.”

Anita Görbicz:

” We did not expect such a balanced match, but we were aware of the fact that this Norwegian team is quiet strong. This is our first match together with the national team, and I feel that passed a quiet long time without match-time.

Now the main issue is to make our team compact and well assembled, to improve our offensive play, because we have to know each others thoughts until WCh. Defense is also important, but we are able to do it better than today.



In the second match of the day Brazil crushed Croatia in a simple match.
