For the adult players of Győri Audi ETO KC, besides the announcement of our CL semi-finalist opponent in the draw earlier this week, the period from 12 to 21 April is also about playing for the national teams. We have already written about the fact that the Hungarian national team, with Victoria Lukács, is playing two World Cup qualifiers with Italy. Let's see what happens to the rest of our team.
The Brazilian national team is training in Croatia, where they play a friendly match with the Dutch and Croatian national teams. Eduarda Amorim summarized the past few days:
"We are in Porec, where we are taking part in a preparation tournament. Our goal is to play good matches that serve our Olympic preparation. Some players were unable to join us because of the virus, but this period is also useful for giving young players even more opportunities to play. Our first game against the Netherland went well and I am confident that the match against Croatia will end in a similar way."
Estelle Nze Minko, Amandine Leynaud, Laura Glauser and Beatrice Edwige are spending a 10-days training camp in France:
"Our preparations are taking place not far from Paris. Fortunately, all of our national team players are available and we have even added some youth players. We don't play any international match this week, we focus more on tactical preparation, because the main goal of camp is to prepare for Tokyo. The atmosphere and team spirit, as always, are fantastic," said Estelle Nze Minko.
Anne Mette Hansen reported from their training camp from Hillerod, in Denmark:
"We play two friendly matches with the Spanish national team. We won the first 30-27, we'll play our next game on Saturday.'
The Norwegian national players of our team don’t have national team program this week, because the Norwegian Handball Federation has cancelled its planned programme for this period due to strict local quarantine regulations.
