The Hungarian women's handball team arrived in Valencia, Spain, on Tuesday, 30 November and will start their World Championshipcampaign on Thursday 2 December. We asked our club's left back Noémie Háfra, about her experiences and the atmosphere on the first days.
"We are staying in a very good place, but it's a bit strange that it's not winter here and the weather is very nice. The weather cools down in the evening, and it was cold in the training hall because they haven't turned the heating on yet. The mood of the national team is very good, of course we are excited, but in my opinion it is not the typical nervousness. We want to enjoy the game, we want to take advantage of the opportunity and our goal is to put our heart and soul on the pitch." - said the player of our team.
