Ugalde: “I have no words”

Ugalde: “I have no words”

Spain used its experience and physical strength, just like in almost every game of the tournament, to beat Croatia 33-29 in Krakow in the second semi-final of the day at the EHF EURO 2016 in Krakow. Spain had lost various semi-finals in recent competitions, like the 2015 World Championship in Qatar one year ago. No surprise that veteran left-wing Cristian Ugalde was speechless after the match.

“I don’t have words. It’s my 8th year in the Spanish team and it’s my first final. We lost four or five semi-finals and now I am so excited and so happy that I have no words.” He might have some more things to say in case his team beats Germany in the final on Sunday. Spain already beat the German team in its first match of the tournament in Wroclaw, winning by a final score of 32:29.
