Djuric: “If Slovenia had won, it wouldn‘t have been undeserved”

Quotes from the Serbian side after their important victory (36-34) over Slovenia:

Dragica Duric – coach:

“It was a very tough match and an important victory of us. If Slovenia had won, it wouldn‘t have been undeserved.”

Katarina Krpez Slezak – right wing:

“I’m happy for the two points, but I’m not satisfied with our performance. I think we were really good in attack, but not in defence. We were bad and slipped a little bit. We should improve in the next matches. It’s important to get more points.”

About Sanja Radosavljevic – the left wing was chosen to MVP of the match:

“Sanja was amazing. I’m really happy because she’s young and this is her first Championship. I hope she will repeat every match like today.”

Opinions from the Slovenian side:

Uros Bregar – coach:

“We didn‘t play well enough in defence throughout the match and in the end, Serbia was better.”

Tamara Mavsar – left wing, top scorer of the game with 9 goals:

“36 goals against us tells everything. Our defence was not on the level we wanted. It was nothing new from Serbia, we were prepared for everything but we weren‘t ready in defence. I hope we will be better for the next game. I know it will be even harder because the teams of Spain and Sweden are even stronger than Serbia. But we cannot put our heads down, we have to prepare and be ready.”

Ana Gros (SLO) – right back

“I’m disappointed, of course. This wasn’t our best performance. We weren’t on our level in defence. We are disappointed because we had chances to win. Maybe they are better than us on paper, but not so much better that us. It will be harder because we face Spain and Sweden and they are really good teams, the stronger national teams. But we are not giving up in advance. We will do all this week to get points.”
