QUOTES:

Alfredo Rodriguez Alvarez, head coach of Spain: I think that was our best match in the tournament, I’m really happy with the work of all the players. I think that our inexperience decided about the result of the match. Korea is amazing team and they play really intelligent handball.

Seon Ok Oh (head coach of Korea): Today we had very difficult match. Even though we did lots of mistakes we managed to win. I think that’s characteristic to Asian temas, that is our power! As far as our biggest strength are concerned I think that we can point out defense style and speed. We play 3:2:1 and that’s our advantage.
