The Slovaks entered the match actively and tried to keep up with the favorite. They only succeeded in the first half of the first half, then the home opponents bounced back to five goals – 10: 5. The guests failed several times in a row on the offensive and the Hungarians went to the locker room with a comfortable seven-goal lead (16: 9).
The picture of the game did not change even after the break, the home team gradually led by 7, 8 and 9 goals. They comfortably brought the match to a victorious end and, thanks to better duels with the Spaniards, they became the group’s winners.
Jorge Dueňas, coach of the Slovak Republic: “I think we played a good match today. In the first half, however, we lost concentration in the defensive situation in some situations. We made some stupid mistakes in the attack. In the second half we improved our defense, they could not score a goal for a long time. But again, we couldn’t score goals. However, we showed a good game against a very good opponent. We need to improve a lot, we have a chance to develop in the future. “
Karin Bujnochová, SR representative: “The impression from this match was better than from the match with the Spaniards. Medveďová caught very well, it helped us in defense. We didn’t change a few pure chances from six, and that was probably the biggest difference. We are under a new coach, we have another system that we work on, which needs its time. “
