15 EHF EURO 2024 places up for grabs in final rounds
The race for the Men’s EHF EURO 2024 has reached its fiery climax, with the last tickets to the final tournament in Germany on the line this week. On Wednesday and Thursday, the round 5 encounters take place — all of which are reverse fixtures of round 1. Round 6 will conclude the qualifiers on Saturday and Sunday.
I feel optimistic for my team, with the biggest respect of course towards Czech Republic and Iceland, but we know sports is sports and home is home, it's a little bit easier to create surprises at home than abroad. We want to look forward to this and train hard now, these 3-4 days before the game
This squad got four points against Ukraine, so there was and is no reason for a change at the moment. Our goal is to win the group. We have already beaten Romania and want to confirm that again in the last qualifying week. But it will not be an easy task. Romania has a broad squad and many players with Champions League experience in its ranks.
If we are going to play as a team, there shouldn't be any problems and we should win. Of course, it is not going to be easy in Greece: we are expecting a great, heated atmosphere from their fantastic fans.
Tomorrow's match is an opportunity for the players who played less in this campaign to show themselves now. We are in transition and at some point the youngsters take over. Nevertheless, I still have a lot of experience in my squad...I have every confidence in that we will succeed
We are excited to be back together, but we expect a difficult match. It won't be easy for us, especially away from home. Regardless of the rejuvenated line-up, our goals are clear. We want to win both matches in the qualifiers and go undefeated in the group.
We should not run away from the role of favourites, we are that against Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina, but we have to be extremely responsible in every training and both matches.
These will be two very important games to close the season. Denmark come with all their players, the team is aware and will work to the maximum during these days because they want this duel. We expect a great atmosphere in Almería and that is always good for us, that strength that they give us every time we play at home.
