EHF EURO 2016 Poland right before kickoff-Group D

juEHF 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 D-Gdansk

Denmark is one of the strongest team of this tournament with a goalkeeper called Niklas Landin, a leader like Mikkel Hansen, wingers like Eggert or Lindberg, even if one of Toft Hansen brothers is injured and therefore sidelined, the other of brothers, Henrik will be there together with Nöddesbö on lineplayer position. The team coached by Gudmundsson is one of the gold favourites.

Hungary is prepared by a new technical staff, lead by Talant Dujsebajev. The new head coach has already stated that he goes for the gold medals, because the title would take Hungary directly to Rio.

But he don’t only has theories, but also his actions are quite unexpected and unusally different from what the Hungarians were used to earlier. Dujsebajev replaced more than the half of the squad, there is no sign of players like Ilyés, Lékai, T.Iváncsik or even Császár was sent home before the start of the tournament, being a reserve.

The Kirghiz-Spaniard headcoach is building a totally new team, with rookies and young prodigies looking only to the future. He kept L.Nagy, Mikler, Shuch, Zubai, K.Nagy and G.Iváncsik, otherwise only new faces to find in the team. In addition Dujsebajev adapted a totally new playing system, which needs more focus and discipline from every player.

Players characterized him like “he is a winner type, gives us confidence and he teaches us something usefull on every workout”.

Russia, always dangerous with good backplayers, pivots and strong defense-we wonder which of their face will they show to the world at this EURO.

Montenegro will be present with a young team, which has the target to get their first ever victory at an European Chamionship, since they did not manage this the last two times. The team is mostly young with a good mix of experienced players and their play ha simproved since qualifications. Will be interesting to see, which level can they hit in Poland.
