First we travel to Hungary, on Saturday we go to France. I think the Hungarians are currently the best team in Europe. They play very fast handball, they are aggressive in defense. Despite the fact that we are aware of the qualities of the competitors, who will also have the advantage of the home field, I want to show our qualities. The game we showed in the first ten minutes of the second half against the Danes will be an example for us. “
