Heidi Löke:

“It was a difficult opening match, against Spania  and we are really glad to win this match. Our defense has worked well and Katrine saved very important balls. Always the defense which brings us victories.

The opponent are very strong in their defense as well, so we didn’t had so many opportunities to get the ball on the line or score, but we managed to hold them at six meter so our backplayers could shoot more freely. It was a winner-tactic.

We hope to come back after a rest day much more stronger.”

Thorir Hergeirsson:

” We showed a lot of acceptable things both in offense and defense, and we had a goalkeeper at her highest level. This is one of the most important positions in handball, and we have another good keeper also. She didn’t play today, but we need her in the upcoming matches.

The team had played with ambition and willing to win, I am satisfied with a strong and good working defense in some periods of the match. Our attack was quiet uneven, there is always similar in the beginning of a competition, we had to work more together.

Nora Mörk made a good match, but she also had some silly mistakes which needs to be corrected. Tonje Nöstvold made also a good match, scored decisive goals in the dying minutes of the match.”

Nerea Pena (Spain):

“It was a difficult match, where we had to fight a lot, but I felt that we cannot play our play. The result is not favorable to us, but we will have to make it better in the next matches. We tried hard but it was not enough.

Carmen Martin got injured, but I hope that is not such a serious one, she just came back to the court.”
