Dorottya Faluvégi, Planéta Szimonetta from Debrecen, and Nadine Schatzl were left out of the Hungarian national team preparing for the women’s handball European Championship starting on Friday.
“The reduced squad was formed based on the training and match performances shown during the preparation. There are several players in the squad who can be deployed in the controlling and controlling positions, as we will need more options for variation in the organization of the game,” the press release of the Hungarian association quotes national team captain Vladimir Golovin, who announced his 18-man traveling squad on Tuesday. 16 handball players can be nominated for the European Championship per match.
The delegation will travel to Ljubljana on Wednesday and begin their participation in the continental competition against Switzerland on Friday at 18:00. The opponent will be Croatia on Sunday from 18:00, and the defending champion Norway from 20:30 on Tuesday. The first three places advance to the semi-finals.
