Nze Minko: ” I do not plan to leave without a medal”

Estelle Nze Minko (FRA) –  back player

She was very disappointed after the lost semifinal against Norway, but she wants to win a medal on Sunday:

” We did not play a good match today, we had our good and bad periods, but in the decisive moments we always made the wrong choices.

” Our defence was good, or goalkeeper had a great performance as well, but if we could not score on the other half of the court, everything is pointless.

” I am really disappointed and sad right now, that we lost our chance to fight for the best medal on Sunday, but I don’t want to go home without one medal, so I want the bronze. We have to forget this semifinal, we have to learn of our mistakes and take down Denmark on Sunday.

“We are a great team and I think we deserve a medal here.

Allison Pineau (FRA) – centre back 

“After the lost semifinal we were sad and had bad feelings, but now we are on the way up mentally and we are recovering as we are ready for the bronze match on Sunday.

“Denmark has a good defence because they play a different system that we are not used to playing in women’s handball. But we have to prepare for it and it’s not so easy. But you have the good and also the bad parts of this defence, so I hope tomorrow we will have the answer.”
