“Personally I had three days for recovery after the last match I played, but every player had two days, and I think that we used very well these two days, to prepare against the Spanish team, both mentally and phisicaly. We analyzed our opponent on videos and we have talked a lot about this important match.

On the workout we made yesterday I have already felt on my teammates that everybody is very focused and the play flows.

We made a really good first half, with good working defense, fast counter attacks and our goalkeepers had a good performance as well, so Spanish team had no solutions against us, every player on the court managed to add something to the result, we worked as a team.

In the second half they came closer, the advantage was only two goals, but we kept the advantage, the lead, and maybe from outside looked like we are in a  weaker period, but every team has their ups and downs during matches, and it showed our mentally strength that we continued to play, to make our movements and to not give the opponent the chance to believe that they can turn over the match.

Inside the court I didn’t feel at all that the opponent has the power to turn the match, or to create problems to our team. We were so focused and willing to get the victory, that nobody could stop us.

The next opponent will be decided in the match between Brazil and Netherlands, both teams are very strong, and could create problems for everyone, but everything depends on us, If we are playing like today, if we bring the same mentality on the court like today we could reach high.”
