Beat Montenegro thanks to 2 notable moments with their normal arguments: defend, run, create. There have been minutes for everybody and relaxation for the chief, Alex Dujshebaev
There are few certainties in sport, even lower than in life. A victory is rarely sure, neither is a defeat, oh the grace, however, however, however. Handball Spain. Since Jordi Ribera turned the coach, virtually seven years in the past, each January the identical group repeats the identical actions, wipes away the identical sweat, shares the identical concepts. And it achieves the identical outcomes. This Thursday one other World Cup started with a victory in opposition to Montenegro (30-25) and it’s inconceivable to think about this workforce outdoors the quarterfinals, even the semifinals.
Throughout this time a number of of the most effective gamers within the historical past of the nation withdrew, Ral Entrerros, Julen Aguinagalde both Viran Morros, and nothing has modified. Anybody who hasn’t seen handball because the Tokyo Video games or, additional again, because the two European Championships they received can get hooked now; discover the identical. A workforce that defends, runs and creates. Not the tallest, not the strongest, however essentially the most united.
Towards Montenegro, Spain didn’t even want a very good recreation to win. It took two moments, midway between each events, first to generate a three-goal benefit (15-12 at halftime) after which to consolidate it. And that the sport had every thing to finish in disappointment: it was the debut in an incredible championship, the workforce educated with many younger individuals, Montenegro was extraordinarily excited, excited, within the recreation of her life, and her goalkeeper, Nebojsa Simic, hit, got here very shut. However the set of Jordi Ribera He knew that doing his factor can be sufficient.
The workforce was by no means snug, however in these good durations, two or three counterattacks from Ángel Fernández or Kauldi Odriozola they served to create the required distance for victory. This Saturday they’ll face Chile and on Monday Iran in a primary section that shouldn’t be greater than a formality. A sort of preparation earlier than a most important section through which France, Slovenia or Poland will enhance the demand. Because the coach demonstrated yesterday, the objective as of late is to avoid wasting effort and hold all of the gamers wholesome.
That’s the reason Joan Caellas didn’t play yesterday, very veteran, however absolutely essential when the playoffs arrive. That’s the reason different thirty-somethings, like Jorge Maqueda, Geden Guardiola both Adrian FiguerasThey didn’t assume the same old minutes. And that is why it even took time to look Alex Dujshebaev, the chief of the group. Jordi Ribera is aware of that if Spain desires to achieve the World Cup ultimate, even win it, the most effective participant within the World Cup should be the oldest of the Dujshebaevs and it can not occur, as on different events, that he reaches the semifinals exhausted.
That’s the reason his position will likely be rising and his brother Dani could have extra ball. Yesterday each scored the identical objectives -four-, however Dani wanted 11 pictures. The entire will rely on the administration of each. In sport there are few certainties, even lower than in life, however, however, however, the Spain of handball.
