EHF EURO 2016 Poland right before kickoff-Group C

EHF EURO 2016 for men is organised this time of Poland and starts this weekend with group matches.

Four venues will host this exciting event as follow: Krakow, Katowice, Wroclaw and Gdansk.

Group C-Wroclaw

Spain  aims high again with a strong squad, where Sterbik and Perez de Vargas will guard the goal and young stars like Alex Dujshebaev, Juan Del Arco Perez and Niko Mindegia Elizaga will be able to make their real debute at a final tournament. With experienced players like Entrerrios, Moros or Canellas- the team of Cadenas is the clear favourite of this group.

Sweden has a Mattias Andersson in the goal, good backplayer line and strong on the pivot position where Andreas Nilsson is unstoppable, but they don’t have to worry on wings either if we just think about that Kalman and Petersen covers the leftwing and Nicklas Ekberg the right side.

Germany is far away the most affected by a series of injuries, where team captain Uwe Gensheimer, right wing Patrick Groetzki, left back Paul Drux, line player Patrick Wiencek and even Michael Allendorf, thought to take over Gensheimer’s role, are all out. They have to rely on young players, mostly unexperienced, but this is how rookies gain experience and international matching.

Slovenia has a good mix of young and experienced players, with fast playmakers, efficient fastbreaks and a headcoach called Veselin Vujovic. They can cause problems for every opponent.
