National coach Alfred Gislason is planning to change the 16-man squad for the eminently important World Cup main round match between the German handball players against European champions Spain on Thursday (8:30 p.m.).
“There will definitely be a few changes,” the 61-year-old Icelander announced on Wednesday. Gislason did not want to disclose details.
After the 28:29 defeat in the preliminary round against Hungary, the DHB selection is already under great pressure in the fight for the quarter-finals. “We have to do a lot better if we are to win the game. We need an optimal day to beat Spain,” said Gislason. The team is now focused on that. “It’s normal to feel down after a defeat. But the mood is good,” said the national coach after moving to the new team quarters.
Goalkeeper oldie Johannes Bitter quickly ticked the damper against Hungary and gave the route: “It’s important that you look ahead with confidence right now. The tournament is not over yet.” The team is fully aware of the importance of the game. “We know that with two defeats you don’t have a great chance of progressing,” said the 38-year-old. “That’s why it’s about a lot.”
