“There are no secrets or mysteries, we just wanted so badly to take this victory and have prepared quiet detailed against this Spanish team. I mean that finally the battle was decided of our mental strength. We knew that this is a knock-out match, where we have to win, and our whole preparation was build to grow to this match both mentally, physically and in play.

We followed the instructions about the tactical movements and we followed our own rules regarding the play, as we wanted before this match. We made a good defense, our goalkeepers could help us with important saves and our attacks were efficient compared to the previous matches. We knew before the match that we just have to show a more precise play, because our chances in attack was there in every match, we just missed more.

I have to add that finally we are working, playing as a team, we needed all these matches and time to get back to that team-spirit that we had last year.

Our target is of course to win the next match as well, the opponent will be Netherlands or Brazil (Brazil has qualified), both teams are dangerous, Dutch team is very fast, meanwhile Brazilians have an unusually style for European players, but we will prepare and we would like of course to defeat them as well.

This World Championship has already brought surprises, as yesterday, so everything can happen.

We want to win the next match on Wednesday, and we would like to play as good handball as we did today or improve of course.”
