Anita Görbicz about the match:

” I have mixed feelings about the whole tournament and the match, because our main goal was to win this cup. But we have to see that our team is not assembled and compact yet, because of the fact that we unfortunately had not any played matches this year.

We needed these matches against strong opponents. Our team has to improve a lot, mainly in defense and goalkeeper performance. This is not the time to be in our best shape, I am convinced that until the WCh we will be able to work as a team again.

I am glad that we showed some very good performances today and in the previous matches, for example Szandra Zácsik, who is a top-class backplayer or Zsuzsanna Tomori played again after yesterday’s illness. “
