Federal captain István Gulyás is waiting for the “travel speed” before the European Championships starting next Thursday in the preparation matches on Thursday and Saturday.

The Hungarian ensemble will receive Belarus in Szigetszentmiklós on Thursday from 6 pm. The captain told MTI the rival is quite serious, with players shooting brave and hard from a distance and having a serious stance. The second opponent will be Bahrain on Saturday from 6 pm – also in the city of Pest County – in connection with which Gulyás remarked that he has several low handball players who agree a lot, which provides an ideal opportunity to prepare for the Dutch style of play.

The headmaster put it, training matches are expected to keep the team’s defense stable, because if they are able to move forward in this and get back to the level where they left off last year, they can be satisfied. He added that slowly the offensive play should also be smooth, as the players did not lose much of this ability as everyone on the club team played until mid-December.

I trust these two matches will be enough to get us the speed we will need said Gulyás.

The ball will play the main role in Telki

The team, ninth in the previous European Championships and fifth in last year’s World Championships, defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina in a preparatory meeting in November, first 26-24 and then 26-23. The Hungarian team will play first on December 16-22 and then on December 27-30. It was made together at the training center of the Hungarian Football Association and will be based there during the continental tournament. The third phase of the joint work began on Sunday.

It is a great opportunity to be here in Telki, as we are also closed to all kinds of external stimuli and the coronavirus, which is definitely good. Players also enjoy, there is peace of mind – He told. The captain explained that during the first two periods of preparation, physical work dominated, but of course there were also ball workouts. The tactical practice started this week, the rest of the time the ball will be predominantly in the lead, but keeping your fitness level is also very important because you have to endure it until the end of January, so coaching is always in the program.

Gulyás does not feel much excitement about the players due to the upcoming world competition in Hungary yet, but in his opinion this will change soon. “Before the first match, they’ll definitely be sharper, more focused, and I think it’ll take until the end of the first match.

The captain reminded that the Hungarian association expects the team to be among the top eight, and then revealed that he always asks some of his coaching colleagues and former teammates about the goals and they also said that the expectation is not overestimated or underestimated.

It’s totally acceptable, and I think players feel that way. ” he pointed out. As José María Rodríguez Vaquero – under the sports nickname Chema – had several coronavirus illnesses in his family, a member of the professional staff has not yet been able to join the team. István Gulyás said that they were a bit surprised by this strange situation, but according to the news, the Spanish trainer could arrive for the national team in a day or two.

In Group B of the European Championship, which runs until January 30, the Hungarians will play next Thursday at 8.30 pm with the Netherlands, next Sunday at 6 pm with Portugal, and on January 18 from 6 pm with Iceland in the new Budapest Handball Arena. The first two places will reach the semi-finals.
