The Spanish players are facing their debut in the tournament with enthusiasm and high hopes and will try to make a good start in the first match against Slovenia. The coach of the national team, Fernando Muñoz, commented on the competition: “We are very motivated to play well in this competition, but we are aware of the reality and the fact that we will face very tough opponents.”
Slovenians are difficult rivals and they have made many problems for the Spanish team in the latest confrontations.
“In this match, there will be a special situation because Slovenians played the day before and we will have to reach them after the day of rest. Slovenia is a team that we know very well, because we played together several times in recent years. This will be the first official match against them this season. The Slovenian national players have great experience and are active in some of the best leagues in the world, so this may be their advantage”, said Fernando.
