The dream of the quarterfinals is over, but the Slovenian handball team will play another decisive match in Poland.
Sunday’s match with Montenegro is not only important in the fight for Olympic qualifications, the guest of the Zepelin podcast, former national team member and former member of the expert staff of the selected team, Gregor Cvijić, claims that it is crucial for the team and good team spirit to end the championship with a win. The native of Ljubljana says that Slovenia left a good impression on Poland, but he must confirm this against Montenegro.
You can also hear the debate about what was decisive in the match with Spain, is it worth playing without a goalkeeper with one less player and also what is the future of Slovenian handball? Can the handball public be optimistic or worried? 15, 20 years ago, in handball, just like in basketball and volleyball, they were looking for very tall, robust players, but the trends have changed. The game is getting faster and faster, so explosiveness and speed are now often more important than inches.
In Zepelin, Gregor Cvijić joined Vala 202 reporter Uroš Volk and podcast host Klemno Verlić.
