Guardiola: “Germany’s defense is impressive”

Guardiola: “Germany’s defense is impressive”

Spain’s Gedeon Guardiola talked to Timeout Magazine at today’s media call at the Tauron Arena in Krakow after yesterday’s win against Croatia and prior to the final tomorrow against Germany: “We knew it wouldn’t be easy against Croatia because they have a very good team. They are very good on offense and have a very physical defense. But we were able to focus on that very well, also regarding their fast-break. We were extremely aware of that.”

He wasn’t wasting too much time looking back, instead he’s already focusing on the final match of the tournament: “Germany is quite fast as well, especially after conceding goals they attack quite fast, we have to be up to the task, because they score a lot of goals like that. On offense they have a lot of good shooters right now, Steffen Fäth is playing a very good tournament. On defense, if they play a 6-0 defense, they have a very good middle block with Lemke and Pekeler. We want the title a lot, it’s our first final at the EHF EURO and obviously we want to make Spain proud.”
