Reactions after Montenegro-Serbia 28 – 28 (16 – 14)

Jovanka Radicevic (MNE), rightwinger:

About the match and play

“Every first game in an important tournament is very difficult. Our defense didn’t worked from teh beginning of the match, and we all know that if you don’t have a good working defense formation so there are slight chances to win a match.

Eventually I am satisfied because we didn’t give up, believed in our chances until the end and despite a bad day of the team we did not lost the match.

Tomorrow is a new day, a new match waits and we have to look forward and take one match at time.

About the opponent

” They did not surprised us, but our defense was not sufficiently hard, that’s why we made a bad match. If you don’t have a good defensive play you cannot win games, against nobody.

About next match

“Against Japan I expect a difficult match, because their style of playing handball, their fast play is very inconvenient to the European teams. In addition we have not so many players on the bench, we miss a lot Radmila Petrovic and Andjela Bulatovic, the  problems in defense is a consequence of this.
