After an even result with South Korea and the victory over Hungary, junior team of BiH on Wednesday suffered the first defeat. Better than BiH players were Slovenians who are unbeaten in their group, while this defeat of BiH team “threw” them in the division of the third and fourth place with Korea.
Therefore players of the selector Zdenka Grbavac in tonight’s match have an urge for victory in order to stay in the race for the second place, but also for the placement into the next round, due to the fact that they have just a point advantage over Hungarians.
Eventual triumph over Congo, and victory over Argentina in the final round on Saturday would give to BiH handball team the second place, giving them “easier” opponents in the final round and safer route to the quarterfinals which is the aim of this selection.
The match BiH – Congo is tonight at 21 pm at the Zetra Stadion, and before it, will be played in the C-group for World Cup; Hungary – Argentina (16:00) and Slovenia – Korea (18:30).
