Eurohandball.com: What conclusions did you draw from the analysis of the Viborg game?

The first match was a nice memory for the Romanain championsGyula Zsiga: We were not able to defend at the same level as before. I have seen an improving attack, but we were not too good in long range shots. We could not solve the marking of Popovic and Jurack and when we could, the other players – German and Danish national players – used their opportunities well.

Eurohandball.com: This time FTC had a true leader in the team...

Zsiga: When Helga Németh stepped on court for the second half, she could help with her goals and vision, so we could come back to four goals. I’m sorry about the endgame as we lost many balls and could not come any closer.

Eurohandball.com: How will you try to avoid a big defeat in Valcea?

Zsiga: It is important to be strong in a difficult environment. Then we also have to correct the mistakes we made in attack at the first match. The girls know Vâlcea by now and I hope that we will play a disciplined game and come away with a good result.
